Dinkie at 97... as
sprightly as ever
after a century
of dance
Dinkie, with her young
students yesterday. and,
inset, during an ice dance
routine in 1953
A DANCE teacher who is still taking three classes a week has just
celebrated her 97th birthday.
And yesterday the sprightly
pensioner revealed the secret of
remaining so youthful.
Dinkie Flowers said: “It’s all
about dancing and exercise.
Everyone should do it.
“I like a cream slice and a
glass of white wine like anyone, but I started dancing
at the age of three and I’ve
just never stopped.”
She now teaches ballet,
floor and tap at her
Dinkie Flowers Stage
School in Shoreham,
By Mark Reynolds
West Sussex. Born nearby in Hove,
East Sussex, in 1921, Dinkie soon
showed some real talent.
When Dinkie learned her first
routines, David Lloyd George had
recently been replaced as prime
minister by Stanley Baldwin and
George V was in the middle of his
25-year tenure on the throne.
She went on to hone her skills at
London’s Italia Conti Academy of
Theatre Arts.
She also fell in love with ice skating, performing at Brighton’s old
Sports Stadium. Dinkie went on to
skate and dance all over the world,
even performing for Prince Philip at
an Ice Gala in 1952 for which she
received a royal letter of thanks.
The dancer went on to marry
husband George, who managed
the famous Raymond Revuebar in
London. He died in 2005. The couple
had a daughter Sarah and four
grandchildren.
Having just renewed her driving
licence until past her 100th birthday,
Dinkie is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
“I’m not going to stop dancing.
Everyone should get off their bottoms and give it a go,” she said.

Harry’s ex-girlfriend left in tears after
final phone call with Prince she loved
So happy...Harry and Meghan on their wedding day
PRINCE Harry shared a tearful
phone call with ex-girlfriend
Chelsy Davy days before his
wedding, it was claimed
yesterday.
US magazine Vanity Fair said
Chelsy, 32, almost pulled out of
attending the event after being
overcome with emotion.
The jewellery designer was
said to have been disappointed
not to have been invited to the
glitzy after-party and promised
not to gatecrash it.
The magazine quoted an
unnamed family friend as
saying: “It was their final call, a
parting call in which they both
acknowledged Harry was
moving on. Chelsy was quite
emotional about it all – she
By Cyril Dixon
was in tears and almost didn’t
go to the wedding.
“In the end, she went and
promised Harry she wouldn’t
try to gatecrash the party.”
Zimbabwean Chelsy had a
seven-year on-off relationship
with the Prince after meeting
him while she was a pupil
at Stowe School in
Buckinghamshire.
After splitting with Harry
eight years ago, the
landowner’s daughter saw
jeweller Charles Goode for a
while. Rumours of a rekindled
romance with the sixth-in-line
to the throne never came to
fruition and Harry had a string
of girlfriends before meeting
US actress Meghan Markle.
Before the wedding, Vanity
Fair claimed Chelsy was
excited about the ceremony
and was shopping for a dress
to wear.
However, her appearance –
along with Cressida Bonas,
Harry’s other significant ex
– sparked a social media
debate about her mood.
Body language expert Judi
James said: “When she arrived,
everyone else was chatting and
laughing but she sat in the
pews just looking to one side,
gazing reflectively into space
and biting her lips slightly.”
A spokesman for Prince
Harry declined to comment.

yesterday.
The stunt was carried
out by Alexei Stolyarov

to Mr Johnson for nearly
20 minutes.
The hoaxer spoke
English with a Russian
accent as he asked how
to handle Russian
president Vladimir Putin
and for information
about the use of
chemical weapons.
The Foreign Office
said yesterday: “Mr
Johnson realised it was
a hoax and ended the
call.” But the stunt raises
serious questions about
Government security.
BRITAIN needs to strengthen its
defences in the face of “increasing
aggression” from a “resurgent Russia”,
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson
warned yesterday.
He said Russian activity around the
UK has soared dramatically in recent
years, with submarines, aircraft and
warships testing British and Allied
defences.
And he told the Daily Express: “Old
threats are returning to haunt us.”
His warning came as defence
sources said Russian activities are
getting back to Cold War levels from
the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.
Yesterday the Ministry of Defence
released a photograph of an RAF
Typhoon flying over the RAF’s newly
reopened £10million Air Defence
Radar station at Saxa Vord, on the
northernmost tip of the UK.
The post on Unst in Shetland was
shut more than 10 years ago but has
been reactivated to return to its role
at the height of the Cold War as
an early warning radar of Russian
military activity on Nato’s northern
flank.
20
Aggression
In a speech yesterday to Naval
experts at the Royal United Services
Institute in London, Mr Williamson
said threats to the nation which were
expected to develop over the next 15
years – including terrorism and cyber
warfare – are here now.
“We’re rapidly having to come to
terms with this new age of warfare.
Look at Russia’s resurgence under
President Putin. Its submarine activity has increased ten-fold in the North
Atlantic,” he said.
“That’s not all. In 2010, the Royal
Navy had to respond once to a
2016
Russian2017
Navy ship approaching UK
territorial waters. Last year we had to
respond 33 times.
“It goes to show the increasing
aggression, the increasing assertiveness of Russia, and how we have to
ensure we give the right support to
our Royal Navy in order to give them
the tools to do the job and keep
Britain safe.”
Relations with Russia nosedived
earlier this year with the nerve agent
attack on former double agent Sergei
Skripal and his daughter Yulia in
Salisbury.
Mr Williamson’s comments come in
the middle of a long-running battle
for more cash for the MoD which is
facing a £20billion deficit over the
next decade. The MoD is conducting
a review with the findings expected in
July ahead of a Nato summit in Brus-

sels. Cuts under consideration are
understood to include reductions in
the Royal Marines and the axing of
their amphibious ships.
The review is taking place amid
escalating Russian activity around
the UK. Royal Navy ships were
deployed to track Russian warships
approaching UK territorial waters on
103 occasions between 2010 and last
year.
Much of this activity relates to
Russian warships travelling to and

Russian deployments include the

and Type 23 frigate HMS Richmond
in the Channel in 2016.
When the ships returned last year
they were followed by the Type 23
frigate HMS St Albans.

Hammond faces demand for more cash
Chancellor Philip Hammond
THE UK’s only defence to
aggressors could be nuclear
if more money is not pumped
into the Armed Forces, Defence
Secretary Gavin Williamson
warned yesterday.
Stepping up his battle for
more resources from Chancellor
Philip Hammond he said that
without sufficient conventional
forces Britain might have “to
turn to the greatest deterrence
of them all”.
The Ministry of Defence faces
a potential shortfall of £20billion
over 10 years and is currently
undergoing a defence review.
It is also investing in the new
generation nuclear deterrent
Dreadnought submarines.
In a speech to the Royal
United Services Institute military think tank, Mr Williamson
said: “One of the failures I think
By John Ingham
that we have sometimes in both
the political world and also the
military world is we’ve gone to a
narrative about talking about
deterrence.
“It’s sometimes difficult to
explain to people that actually
investing in our Armed Forces is
all about making sure that
things do not happen.
“We’ve got to start explaining
so much more clearly that a
deterrence isn’t just four nuclear
bombs.
“It is about aircraft carriers,
it is about a presence in the
Pacific, a presence in the North
Atlantic, a presence in the
Mediterranean and in the Gulf.”
He added: “If we do not have
that conventional deterrence,
and the ability to deter from
conventional forces, then what
we’ll find ourselves in is a place
that none of us wish to be in –
and having to turn to the greatest deterrence of them all.”
Downing Street last night
played down claims that Mr
Williamson was proposing using
nuclear weapons more readily
than had previously been
considered.
A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “As the PM has
said previously, the whole point
of the deterrent is that our
enemies need to know that we
would be prepared to use it.
“But we do also continue to
invest in conventional military
capabilities and that’s why we
have committed to spending
over £179billion on equipment
and equipment support for the
Armed Forces.”
to pass through the Channel, which
counts as international waters, they
are thought to be taking the opportunity to test UK defences and

In the past decade the RAF has

SPY CHIEFS LAUNCH DRIVE
TO RECRUIT MORE WOMEN
By Anil Dawar
MI6 is seeking to recruit more women and
ethnic minorities into the Secret Intelligence
Service with the help of a TV advert.
The agency has seen an upsurge in interest
since the nerve agent attack on the former spy
Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
According to the latest official figures from
March 2016, 24.1 per cents of senior staff and
37.8 per cent of non-senior staff were women
while there were no black, Asian and minority
ethnic members among the senior ranks.
The advert’s opening shot of a shark gliding
menacingly through an aquarium is a nod to
the service’s associations with James Bond.
But it then cuts to a child who steps back in
alarm before his mother who sweeps him up in
her arms, highlighting the “soft skills” MI6
wants from its new entrants.
MI6 chief Alex Younger said: “I want people
who would have never have thought about
joining MI6 to think about joining.”

Institute research fellow Justin Bronk
said there had also been “a significant
increase in Russian submarine activity”. And Britain’s lack of maritime
patrol aircraft meant the Navy had to
carry out a lot more surface activity.
Mr Bronk said although the number
of incidents may have declined, there
had been a trend of “larger groups of
2012

aircraft” being sent by Russia. Part of
the reason for the operations was
“reminding Nato they are there”, he
said, adding: “There is certainly an
element of sabre-rattling to it.
“They want to be taken seriously as a
significant military power. One way to
do that is to force Quick Reaction Alert
scrambles.
“It’s part of a pattern of the Russians
trying to keep up consistent military
activity across Nato. It fits in with a lot

SIX months ago, the very thought
that an idyllic cathedral city in
Wiltshire would be the scene of the
first chemical attack on Europe’s
streets since the end of the Second
World War would have been
unthinkable.
Yet that attack on Sergei and Yulia
Skripal in Salisbury was a stark
reminder that we’re living in an ever
more dangerous age.
The whole nation is delighted that
both are on the mend.
Their remarkable recovery is
a tribute to the swift action of
our great emergency services,
and the unparalleled expertise of
our Defence Science and
Technology Laboratory and
brave service personnel keeping
Salisbury safe.
But though the future looks
brighter for the Skripals, the danger
to our nation has not diminished.
The character of warfare is
changing. Old threats are returning
to haunt us.
New ones are emerging. Terrorist
groups are using drones to drop
bombs, launching ballistic missiles
against airports and anti-shipping
missiles to target vital trading
routes.
Meanwhile, resurgent states such
as Putin’s Russia are increasingly
assertive. The Kremlin continues to
challenge us in every domain.
In less than a decade the RAF has
been scrambled 58 times to respond
to Russian military aircraft.
In 2010 the Royal Navy was
called on just once to
respond to Russian navy
ships approaching UK
territorial waters. Last
year, that number had
rocketed to 33.
10
Russian activity has
increased ten-fold in the
North Atlantic – a level not
seen since the end of the
7
Cold War.
Along the way, Russia
has turned a blind eye to
chemical carnage in Syria
states and Sweden as well as submarine
activity, surface activity and of course
what they are doing in Syria.”
Earlier this year the head of the Army,
General Sir Nick Carter, warned that
Russia is “the arch exponent” of
“exploiting the seams between peace
and war” with tactics such as “bribes,
corrupt business practices, cyber
attacks, assassination, fake news, propaganda and military intimidation”.

while using cyber attacks to disrupt
governments and undermine
democracy.
We have to adapt to meet the
intensifying threat. So we’re making
sure our Armed Forces have all the
equipment and support they need
to keep our nation safe whether in
cyberspace, on land, in the air or
at sea.
Yesterday at the RUSI Sea Power
Conference, I set out my vision for a
stronger Royal Navy.
We’re going to make sure the UK
retains one of the world’s most
formidable fleets: nuclear
Dreadnought submarines; Type 26
Global Combat ships; Type 23
frigates armed with supersonic
Sea Ceptor missiles and new
Merlin Mk4 helicopters, as well
as our innovative future Commando
Force.
All this plus our majestic
new Queen Elizabeth flagship
with the punching power of
our fifth-generation F-35 stealth
fighters.
Next month those fast jets fly
home to Britain. Later in the year,
F-35s will fly from the Queen
Elizabeth’s decks.
Our carrier strike force is
back and the message that
it is sending couldn’t be

Poisoned Yulia Skripal has released a video message
YULIA Skripal’s video message

Pro-Kremlin media, politicians

In her message, the 33-year-old
said she believed she and her
father Sergei were the victims of
an assassination attempt involving
nerve agent Novichok.
And despite saying she hoped to
return to Russia in the future, Ms
Skripal said she and her father
were “not ready” to accept the
assistance from the Russian

“Up to this point, Russia has not

Mr Peskov also claimed that the
UK had not complied with the
Vienna Convention so it was
impossible to know if Ms Skripal

UK hands EU
a £1bn bill
over sat nav
system snub
THERESA May has
warned she will make
Brussels pay for
snubbing Britain over a
key security project.
The EU plans to
exclude Britain from its
Galileo satellite
navigation system after
Brexit.
But the Government
has issued a paper to
Brussels demanding it
pays Britain back the
£1billion the UK has
spent on the project.
Mrs May’s decision to
face down the bloc
comes as a number of
EU governments –
including France,
Holland, Sweden and
three Baltic states – are
said to have made it
clear they do not agree
with the hard-line
approach being taken by
chief Brexit negotiator
Michel Barnier.
They fear European
security will be reduced
if the UK is unable to
use Galileo for defence
purposes and goes
ahead with its own
satellite navigation
system.
Britain has rejected
the EU’s view that it
cannot remain a full
member of the project
after Brexit.
London insists it is in
the interest of both sides
to continue to work
together on security
issues. The paper said
the position adopted by
Brussels “risks being
interpreted as a lack of
trust” in the UK.
Britain has threatened
to launch its own version
of the Galileo system if
the EU does not change
its stance.
Windrush
cases soar
to 5,000
THE number of
“potential” Windrush
cases reported to the
Home Office has passed
the 5,000 mark.
They are among a
total of 13,000 calls to a
specialist unit set up
after the scandal
erupted earlier this year.
Many of the Windrush
generation, named after
a ship that brought
migrants to Britain from
the Caribbean in 1948,
don’t have enough
formal documentation,
which has led to some
losing their jobs and
homes and being denied
health care.
Home Secretary Sajid
Javid has announced
new legislation designed
to help end the crisis.
The Home Office also
disclosed that more than
850 people now have
documentation following
an appointment with
their team.
Mr Javid said: “I want
to swiftly put right the
wrongs that have been
done to this generation
and am committed.”
Number of Romanians living in Britain
rockets by 25 per cent in just one year
By Alison Little
THE TOP 20 FOREIGN
NATIONALITIES IN UK
Deputy Political Editor
ROMANIANS are now the
second commonest foreign
nationality in Britain, official
figures showed yesterday.
Citizens from the eastern
European state were among
some 3.8 million people from
other EU countries living in
the UK.
Campaigners said the
figures from the Office for
National Statistics flew in the
face of Remainers’ warnings
of a “Brexodus” of EU
workers since the 2016
referendum.
Romanians have overtaken
people from Ireland and India
to claim second place behind
Poles in a league table of
non-Britons living here who
are citizens of another
country.
An estimated 411,000
Romanian nationals were
living in the UK last year, a
25 per cent increase since
2016 and the biggest
increase recorded for people
from any country.
Romania and Bulgaria
became the EU’s poorest
members when they joined
in 2007.
Limits on their citizens’
rights to live and work in
Britain were lifted in 2014.
A total of 6.2 million
non-British nationals were
living in the UK in 2017 –
about a 10th of the

FOOD waste from the House
of Commons has more than
doubled in the past three
years to nearly 300 tons.
Now
senior
MPs
are
demanding action over the
“staggering” level of waste.
Last year parliamentary
caterers threw out 282 tons of
food – equal to the weight of
21 London buses.
That was up from 130 tons
in 2015 and 228 tons in the
2016-17 period.
Labour MP Kerry McCarthy, who chairs the All-Party
Parliamentary Group on food
waste and sits on the Commons Environment Committee, said yesterday the wastage totals were “staggering”.
Pledging to seek talks with
House authorities, she said
Parliament had signed up to a
voluntary hospitality and food
service agreement created by
recycling charity Wrap.
Millions of EU citizens
are still working in UK
That was up four per cent on
the year before.
Some 3.8 million or 61 per
cent of the non-British
citizens held passports from
another EU country, about
the same as in 2016.

the number of people in
Britain who were born

from foreign nationals

EU-born people as a result of
Brexit. They are still coming

to a population increase
which is unsustainable.”
Nicola White, of the ONS
migration team, said:
“Non-UK born and nonBritish populations
continued to increase in
2017, as more people
continued to come to the UK
to live. The largest increases
were seen from those born in
Romania.”
The ONS survey identified
the areas of Britain which
have experienced the biggest
increase in non-UK-born
residents since 2007.
Boston in Lincolnshire was
the most changed, with its
foreign-born population
rising from three to
29 per cent.
Anger as amount of food
thrown out by Commons

who chairs the Commons
Environmental Audit Committee, said it was part of a
broader issue, with the UK
sending six million tons of
food waste to landfill every
year.
She said ministers should
support more councils to
collect food waste separately
from other rubbish.

“I’d like to know why this

Labour MP Mary Creagh,
“The Government plans to

The Oscar winner faces misconduct allegations
Morgan Freeman was yesterday accused
of sexually harassing at least eight women.
The 80-year-old actor was hit with
allegations of trying to lift up young
women’s skirts or touching their bodies and
giving them massages without their
permission.
Women who worked for his production
company said it was a “toxic environment”
and that he asked one former employee:
“How
do
you
feel
about
sexual
harassment?”
Speaking of another woman he worked
with, Mr Freeman allegedly said: “I’d like to
have an hour with her.”
The allegations, in a report by TV news
channel CNN, were the result of an investigation that took more than a year to
complete and paints a portrait of Mr
Freeman as a “creepy uncle”, as former
staffers called him.
In a statement last night Mr Freeman
said: “Anyone who knows me or has worked
with me knows I am not someone who
would intentionally offend or knowingly
make anyone feel uneasy.
“I apologise to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected – that was
never my intent.”
Since the exposure of Harvey
Weinstein as a sexual predator last
year, dozens of men in Hollywood,
the media and business have
been outed for alleged misconduct.
But the allegations against Mr
Freeman stand out because he is
such a beloved star, with a movie
career that spans five decades.
His best known films include
Driving Miss Daisy, Seven and
The Shawshank Redemption,
while he won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Million
Dollar Baby in 2005.
As part of their investigation CNN spoke to 16
people, half of whom
claimed they were victims
of Mr Freeman. The other
half said they witnessed
his alleged conduct.
A woman who was a
senior member of the
production staff of the
movie Now You See Me
in 2012 described Mr
Freeman as “sleazy”.
She said: “He did

ies. We knew that if he was coming by not to
wear any top that would show our breasts,
not to wear anything that would show our
bottoms.”
A young production assistant who worked
on bank heist comedy Going In Style in
2015, alleged that she endured several
months of harassment by Mr Freeman.
She said he would put his hand on, or rub,
her lower back whenever he saw her.
One time he “kept trying to lift up my
skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear”
but she moved away, she said. Mr Freeman
allegedly carried on trying to grab it until
another actor made a comment.
Mr Freeman and his business partner
Lori
McCreary
founded
Revelations
Entertainment in 1996 to encourage more
roles for black actors.
But it appears to have had no human
resources department and women who
worked there said they had little recourse
against Mr Freeman.
A woman employed at Revelations said
that Mr Freeman would “come over to my
desk to say hi and he’d just stand there
and stare at me. He would stare at
my breasts”.
Others described how one day
Mr Freeman went up to a young
intern and gave her a massage
until she “went visibly red and
wriggled out of his grasp”.
A female production assistant who worked with Mr
Freeman on The Dark Knight
said he made inappropriate
comments to female crew
members on the set.
She said: “Morgan did
things in a way that an
older, more established person can
get
away
with
because they have
that power.”
The investigation by CNN
began when its
entertainment
reporter,
Chloe Melas,
interviewed
Mr Freeman.
Ms Melas,
who was six
months
pregnant, said that,
in a room full of
people, Mr Freeman told her she was
“ripe”.
Star dismisses
family rumour
as ‘fabrication’
Actor with stepgranddaughter
E’Dena Hines
at a 2008
TV premiere
By Daniel Bates
MORGAN Freeman has been
accused of lurid behaviour
with family members in the
past, which he has
vehemently denied.
The star has branded
outrageous claims that he
had inappropriate relations
with his step-granddaughter
E’Dena Hines as
“defamatory fabrications”.
The unsubstantiated
accusations, which were
vigorously denied, were first
made in US tabloids in 2009
and were mentioned last
month in the trial of Lamar
Davenport, Miss Hines’
boyfriend, who was
convicted of stabbing her to
death at her home in
Manhattan in 2015.
Defence lawyer Annie
Costanzo said that shortly
before her death Ms Hines,
who was 33, had told
Davenport about an
inappropriate relationship.
Mr Freeman categorically
denies the claims. In a 2012
statement he said: “Recent
reports of any pending
marriage or romantic
relationship of me to anyone
are defamatory fabrications
from the tabloid media
designed to sell papers.”
A separate statement from
Ms Hines said: “These
stories about me and my
grandfather are not only
untrue, they are also hurtful
to me and my family.”
Mr Freeman has been
married and divorced twice
and has five children.
Two were adopted by the
star, including Ms Hines.
Weinstein ‘to be held on sex assault charges’
DISGRACED movie mogul Harvey
Weinstein is expected to hand himself
in to New York City police over charges
of sexual misconduct today.
US investigators are preparing to
arrest the former film producer and
he is expected to surrender to authorities, the New York Times reported
yesterday.
It was reported earlier this week
that federal prosecutors had launched
an inquiry into Mr Weinstein, who
has denied all allegations of sexual
assault.
These are separate to the investigation currently under way by the Manhattan District Attorney, the former

papers filed on May 3 in The Weinstein
Company’s bankruptcy proceedings,
Weinstein’s lawyer Benjamin Brafman
said his client was a “principal target”
of an investigation being carried out
by the US attorney’s office in Manhattan.
He said: “I am trying my very best to
persuade both the federal and state
prosecutors that he should not be
arrested and/or indicted because he
did not knowingly violate the law.”
The allegations against him were
“entirely without merit”, he added.
Weinstein is currently under criminal investigation in New York, Los
Angeles and London. He has not been
charged with any crimes, though
police in New York have said publicly
that they believe there is enough
­evidence to make an arrest.
More than 80 women have come
forward to accuse the 66-year-old of
various forms of sexual assault, from
inappropriate comments to rape.
Some of the industry’s biggest stars,
including Angelina Jolie, Daryl Hannah and Salma Hayek, have claimed
that they were victims of the oncepowerful man.
The sex scandal has engulfed all of
Hollywood with Morgan Freeman just
the latest in a string of male stars
accused of sexual misconduct. Comic
Bill Cosby faces 10 years in prison after
being convicted of three counts of
aggravated indecent assault.
Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey’s career

allegations of sexually harassing young
men surfaced.
Batman star Ben Affleck apologised
for acting “inappropriately” after several women accused him of groping
them.

Brad Pitt once threatened to kill Weinstein after he behaved inappropriately
towards her more than 20 years ago.

Boys plotted new Manchester horror at their school
A PAIR of teenagers planned to
butcher their classmates with a nail
bomb like the one used in the
Manchester Arena terror attack.
The two 14-year-olds, who were
convicted of plotting to murder
yesterday, were in the final stages of
preparing a savage assault when they
were arrested by anti-terror police.
The atrocity was intended to
replicate the 1999 Columbine High
School Massacre in Colorado, where
white supremacists Eric Harris and
Dylan Klebold murdered 12 students
and a teacher, injuring dozens more.
The evil pair, now 15, had researched
the explosive device used to murder
22 people at an Ariana Grande concert
in Manchester last May.
During a three-week trial, jurors
heard how the boys had prepared a
“hit list” of people they wanted to kill
at their school in Northallerton, North
Yorkshire, including fellow students
and teachers who had supposedly
bullied or wronged them.

have kept a diary in which he
espoused what prosecutors described
as a “far-Right wing ideology”.
The pair were questioned by police
in September 2017 when the younger
boy told a schoolgirl via Snapchat that
they were planning a shooting.
A teacher told the court the boy had
said his targets were “infecting the
gene pool” and that he and his friend
were performing a “service to society”.
The older boy’s girlfriend also
claimed that he encouraged her to
give him access to her father’s shotgun
and planned to murder her parents to
become a “natural born killer”.
The court heard how the boy had
previously been convicted of unlawful
wounding after carving his name into
his then-girlfriend’s lower back.
Paul Greaney QC, prosecuting, told
the trial at Leeds Crown Court that
the boys “hero-worshipped” the
Columbine killers. They will be
sentenced at a later date.

EXPERTS have called for a “completely different mindset” towards
caring for the elderly as figures
reveal the number of pensioners is
set to soar by nearly two million in
the next eight years.
There are 9.9 million people aged
65 and over in England alone and
this is set to jump to 11.8 million by
2026. In less than a decade, 97 local
authorities are projected to have a
population where at least a quarter
are 65 and above.
Former pensions minister Steve
Webb, now director of policy at Royal
London, said: “In a decade we will
be talking about the rapid growth in
the over-75s and businesses and
public services will need a completely different mindset to meet
the diverse needs of this age group.”
By mid-2026, the number of
elderly people is projected to grow
faster than those in younger age
groups in all but five council areas
across England, according to the
Office for National Statistics.
The rapidly growing numbers of
elderly Britons makes the Daily
Express campaign for a
Minister for

even
more
urgent,

longevity
experts.
Steve Wilkie
of retirement
specialists
Responsible Life, said: “It’s great
news to see the Daily Express
campaigning for a Minister for the
Elderly. It’s about time the needs of
the ageing population were further
up the political agenda.”
The proportion of people aged
65-plus is projected to rise in all but
five local authorities – Bexley, Brentwood, City of Bristol, Coventry, and
Havering.
The number of over-85s is set to
grow from 1.3 million in 2016 to 1.6
million over the next decade, according to Andrew Nash of the ONS.
He said: “People are living longer
and the other knock-on effect is
from two groups of baby boomers
hitting old age – the post-war group
who are now in their 70s and those
born in the 1960s who are heading
towards their 60s and 70s.”
Over the 10 years to mid-2026,
London has the fastest increase in
over-65s, but remains the region
with the lowest Old Age Dependency Ratio (OADR) – the proportion
of people of state pension age per
1,000 working age population. The
South west has the highest OADR
for both mid-2016 and mid-2026, at
379 and 383 respectively.
Mr Webb added: “It is not just a
matter of the rising costs of pensions, health and care, but also the
way in which services are provided.”

Be of good
heart and
cut risk of
Alzheimer’s
By Giles Sheldrick
A HEALTHY heart in middle
age significantly reduces the
risk of dementia in later life,
a 30-year investigation shows.
Initial results from a
University of Oxford study
prove that what is good for
the heart in your 40s is good
for the brain in old age.
Previous research has
shown that up to one third of
all dementia cases could be
prevented by so-called
“modifiable risk factors”,
meaning a breakdown in
mental function is not an
inevitable part of growing old.
Low blood supply to brain
is one of the earliest signs of
dementia, which now affects
850,000 people in Britain.
Symptoms
This latest study has shown
that high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, lifestyledriven Type 2 diabetes,
obesity and smoking all
contribute to lower blood
supply to the brain.
Lead researcher Dr Sana
Suri said: “Vascular health in
mid-life is already predicting
what the blood supply to the
brain is going to be when we
are around 20 years older.
“We need to be proactive in
starting to think about brain
health at a younger age.
“This study shows that
everything we do in our 40s is
important. Cardiovascular
health in our 40s may already
be setting the stage for what
our brain health is like later.”
The findings were
presented for the first time at
the Alzheimer’s Society
annual conference as part of
Dementia Action Week.
Dr Doug Brown of the
Alzheimer’s Society, said: “If
we could have a simple test
that could predict risk and at
the same time a treatment
could be given before people
start to show symptoms, well,
that’s the Holy Grail.”

My case is tip of iceberg, says
man falsely accused of rape
Robert Adlington spent nearly eight months in jail
THE businessman who
endured nearly eight months in
jail because police failed to

including rape, fears his case

Robert Adlington saw his life

But police failed to disclose

follows a series of failures to
disclose vital information that
would exonerate men charged
with rape.
The CPS was unable to say
how many cases were being
reviewed, but it is thought to
be several thousand.
Mr Adlington, of Buxton,
Derbyshire, said: “If a
policeman said or claimed
something, I would have
backed them all they way, as
most people of my generation
would. But now that has gone
completely out of the window. I
have no trust in them at all.
“I cannot believe my case is
unique. I would imagine there
are other people who have just
decided to try to put the matter
behind them and not speak

to try and ensure things

have to endure the nightmare
that I have experienced.
“I fear my case might be just
the tip of the iceberg. It is a
crucial that newspapers like
the Daily Express are able to
shine a light on police
wrongdoing.”
During his first police
interview after his arrest last
May, Mr Adlington and his
lawyer were told that phones
had already been seized but
their contents were withheld
for months.

Trump scraps historic summit
over North Korea’s ‘hostility’
black hero johnson pardoned
By David Pilditch
DONALD
Trump
dramatically
pulled out of a historic nuclear summit with North Korean dictator Kim
Jong-un yesterday, saying the world
had “lost a great opportunity for
lasting peace”.
The US President said he made
the decision because of the “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a
recent North Korean statement.
President Trump, 71, was referring to remarks by Choe Son Hui,
North Korea’s foreign affairs spokeswoman, in which she branded US
Vice President Mike Pence “ignorant
and stupid”.
Asked if the cancellation of the
summit increased the risk of war,
President Trump said: “We’ll see
what happens.”
DONALD Trump yesterday
pardoned Jack Johnson, the
first black heavyweight
boxing champion, who was
jailed a century ago over a
relationship with a white
woman.
“I believe Jack Johnson is
a worthy person to receive a
pardon, to correct a wrong in
our history,” Mr Trump said.
In a case that symbolised
racial injustice, Johnson was
arrested in 1912 with Lucille
Cameron, who later became
his wife, for violating the
Mann Act. The law was
passed two years earlier and
made it a crime to take a
woman across state lines for
immoral purposes.
Johnson died in 1946. In
Anger
In a letter to Mr Kim, which was
released by the White House, Mr
Trump said he had been “very much
looking forward” to meeting him at
the summit, which was scheduled to
take place in Singapore on June 12.
But Mr Trump – who had previously branded Mr Kim “little rocket
man” – added: “Sadly, based on
the tremendous anger and open
hostility displayed in your most
recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have the longplanned meeting.
“Therefore, please let this letter
serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both
parties, but to the detriment of the
world, will not take place.”
Mr Trump went on to warn: “You
talk about your nuclear capabilities,
but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never
have to be used.”
He said the “missed opportunity”
was a “truly sad moment in history”
but urged Mr Kim to “call me or
write” if he changed his mind.
Last night the White House said

Rocky films star Sylvester
Stallone and British former
world heavyweight champion
Lennox Lewis flanked Mr
Trump for the pardon in the
Oval Office. Last month, Mr
Trump tweeted that he was

talking to Stallone.
“This has been a long time
coming,” said Stallone,
adding that Johnson was the
inspiration for Apollo Creed
in the Rocky movies.
US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un will now no longer meet on June 12.
War of words... an extract from President Trump’s letter to Kim Jong-un yesterday, cancelling the nuclear summit
Pence was “the last straw” that led
to cancelling the summit. It came in
an angrily worded statement by
Choe Son Hui, in response to an
interview Mr Pence had given to TV
station Fox News.
The cancellation came just hours
after North Korea said it had demolished its only nuclear test site at
Punggye-ri.
Foreign
journalists
invited to attend said they witnessed
a series of explosions at the site.
Mr Pence had warned North Korea
it could end up like Libya, whose
former leader Colonel Gaddafi gave
up his nuclear programme only
to be killed by Nato-backed fighters.
In response, Ms Choe suggested the
two countries could meet for a
summit or for a nuclear showdown.
She said: “I cannot suppress my
surprise at such ignorant and stupid
remarks gushing out from the mouth
of the US vice president.
“We will neither beg the US for
dialogue nor take the trouble to
persuade them if they do not want
to sit together with us. In case the
US offends against our goodwill and
clings to unlawful and outrageous
acts, I will put forward a suggestion
to our supreme leadership for reconsidering the summit.” Later, in a
statement at the White House, Mr
Trump warned North Korea the US
military stands ready if necessary to
deal with any “reckless act”.
He added: “While many things can
happen and a great opportunity lies
ahead potentially, I believe that this
is a tremendous setback for North
Korea and indeed a setback for the
world.”
The President said the US would
continue its “maximum pressure”
campaign of sanctions to press
North Korea to give up its nuclear
weapons, adding: “I hope that Kim
Jong-un will ultimately do what is
right not only for himself but perhaps most importantly what’s right
for his people, who are suffering
greatly and needlessly.”
The US military said it is on “a
high state of vigilance”.
Last night Theresa May was said
to be “disappointed”. A Downing
Street spokeswoman said last night:
“We need to see an agreement that
can bring about the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.”
South Korean President Moon
Jae-in said: “I am very perplexed
and it is very regrettable the North
Korea-US summit will not be held.”
The summit, announced in March,
would have seen the first ever meeting between a serving US President
and a North Korean leader.

THE mother of murdered nanny
Sophie Lionnet told of her “living
nightmare” yesterday as the young
French woman’s killers faced life
behind bars.
Catherine Devallonne said she
relives her tortured daughter’s horrific death every day.
“My heart is broken, shattered
into a million pieces,” she said.
Sophie’s father, Patrick Lionnet,
told how the killers had “stolen my
sleep, my happiness, my peace of
mind and my future”.
He added: “They are not human,
they are savages.”
Sophie’s parents were speaking
after Sabrina Kouider and Ouissem
“Sam” Medouni were found guilty of
Sophie’s murder.
The cruel pair held the 21-year-old
prisoner at their home in Wimbledon, south-west London, starved
her and beat her remorselessly.

woman to confess to a string of
bizarre and distressing crimes which
never took place.
The outlandish and false allegations revolved around wealthy music
promoter Mark Walton – founder of
boy band Boyzone – who had an
affair with Kouider.
Her spirit crushed, Sophie made
a halting, pathetic confession just
before her death last September as
the callous couple filmed her on a
mobile phone.
The images showed “a scared,
broken and emaciated young girl
who probably knew she was facing
death”, said the Met’s Detective
Inspector Domenica Catino.

her in the bath.

convicted by a 10-2 majority. The
pair had admitted perverting the
course of justice by burning Sophie’s
body.
They now face life in jail when they
are sentenced next month.
A naive country girl from Troyes,
north-east France, Sophie went to
live with Kouider and Medouni in
January 2016.
She was beaten, abused in public,
prevented from going home and
hardly paid a penny, the court
heard.
Kouider became fixated with the
idea that Sophie was Mr Walton’s
lover and accomplice in a series of
despicable crimes.
The most bizarre was the entirely
false allegation that Sophie had let
the music presenter and another
man into the flat where they drugged
and sexually abused the couple
while they were unconscious.
Mrs Devallonne said yesterday:
“Sophie had only just started to live,
her life had only just begun.
“No one had the right to take it
away. Sophie’s precious life, it was
not theirs to take.” Speaking of the
killers, she added: “No one, no God
will ever forgive you for the lies you
have told this court, for the prolonged pain and hurt you have both
inflicted on our little girl.
“You are equally as evil as one
another.”
Mrs Devallonne, who separated
from Mr Lionnet when Sophie was
four, said her life is a “living nightmare” as she imagines her daughter’s horrific death every day.
She has kept Sophie’s bedroom as

disastrous way.
It transpired 158 council-owned
tower blocks would have to be
completely reclad with fire-retardant
materials to replace fire-accelerant
materials. Work on 104 has started with
the other 54 to follow. What leaves us
slack-jawed is this: how on earth could
any bureaucrat not certifiably insane
actually approve the cladding of a
building intended for human habitation
with fire-accelerant material in the first
place? Did they actually want a
multi-casualty firestorm?
The fact there are 158 such buildings
proves this was not just one borough, or
one city, or one political party in
charge. So will the lethal clowns on our
payroll who signed off these death traps
ever be named or censured or even fired
as they should certainly be?
If this homicidal scandal had derived
from the private sector, the developer
responsible would be prosecuted, the
directors in the dock, the company
bankrupt from paying restitution.
As these were public sector horrors, it
looks as if the usual cover-up will
prevail. Of the 210 households that
needed rehousing after the fire 201 have
been resettled. But still no names or
faces of those responsible.
Yet if you or I had knocked down
a pedestrian by gross negligence,
retribution through the courts would
have descended like an avenging angel.
What was that we used to read about?
Equality before the law? It has been
a long time.

EU-sceptic. Brussels (the EU government) is in a sniping war
with Poland and Hungary. Spain is in a constitutional crisis with
Catalan elections pending. The prospect of Italy going sour on
them explains the truculent rage of the Barnier negotiating team
in seeking to deny a single concession, however mild, to the UK.
If our Government would only recognise the real agenda of
the Lords and the Civil Service (failure of Brexit), it might
perceive that our position is far stronger than we are led to
believe. The Britain-is-rubbish school of thought is almost
entirely confined to Britain. Foreigners don’t share it… and it is
time we got rid of it. In short, if you want our taxes in your bank
account, stand up for us and our clearly expressed opinion.

N A windswept golden beach and then
on a chain of remote islands I met some
angry birds this week. Very angry. They
are the crossest, most hyperactive
birds I have ever seen. They never stop

frantic process over and over again.

pecking at my hat, and pooped on me twice in
Stuka-style raids. It’s supposed to be lucky
though it didn’t feel like it as I washed the fishy
guano off in the icy sea.

AN ARMY sergeant is facing life
in jail after he was found guilty
yesterday of trying to murder
his wife by tampering with her
parachute and sabotaging a gas
valve at their home.
Emile Cilliers, 38, who was
described as “very dangerous,
coercive and manipulative”, will
be sentenced next month.
His wife Victoria, 42, suffered
near-fatal injuries when both her
main and reserve parachutes
failed as she took part in a jump
in 2015.
She survived after landing in a
ploughed field.
The sex-mad defendant, who
was debt ridden and had affairs
with a string of women, showed
no emotion as he was convicted
unanimously on two counts of
attempted murder.
Alerted
It was his second trial after the
first jury failed to reach a verdict.
During his trial, the prosecution at Winchester Crown Court
told jurors how South Africanborn Cilliers wanted to kill his
wife because of her £120,000 life
insurance.
He first tried to gas her at their
home in Amesbury, Wiltshire,
but the smell alerted her to the
danger and she later jokingly
texted him to say: “Are you trying
to kill me?!”
He then hatched a plot to
sabotage her parachute on the
eve of a 4,000ft jump.
Cilliers, of the Royal Army
Physical Training Corps, tangled
her main canopy and removed
vital links from her reserve in a
toilet cubicle.
At the time the father of six,
whom the prosecution called a

scoundrel”, was in sexual relationships with Mrs Cilliers, his
ex-wife Carly, and a third lover
named Stefanie Goller whom he
met on dating app Tinder. He had
also contacted prostitutes about
meeting up for unprotected sex.
The court heard of the extraordinary hold he had over the wife
he wanted to murder.
During the two trials Mrs Cilliers gave contradictory evidence
and became a “hostile witness” to
the prosecution.
She even had to be warned not
to meet her husband six months
after he tried to kill her.
Speaking outside court, Detective Inspector Paul Franklin, of
Wiltshire Police, described Cilliers
as “cold and calculated” and a
“very dangerous man”.
He said Cilliers could easily
have escaped being caught for
the attempts on his wife’s life at
Netheravon airfield, Wiltshire.
DI Franklin added: “He tried
very hard. It was due to due
diligence of the staff at the
Army Parachute Association who
brought it to our attention but
it could have passed off as an
accident.”

Firebomb killers are jailed
By Chris Richards
TWO MEN and a woman were
jailed yesterday for a combined
minimum of 98 years for killing
four children by petrol bombing their home as they slept.
Victims Demi Pearson, 15,
her brother Brandon, eight,
and her sisters, Lacie, seven,
and Lia, three, all perished in
an act of mindless revenge.
Their mother Michelle Pearson was left in a coma for six
months and only discovered
her heartbreaking loss when
she woke in April.
Zak Bolland, 23, his girlfriend Courtney Brierley, 20,
and his friend David Worrall,
26, were filmed grinning with
glee as they planned last

House where the youngsters died after it was firebombed
Manchester Crown Court
heard the attack was provoked
by a petty dispute between
Bolland and the siblings’ older
brother Kyle Pearson, 17.
Kyle, who was in the house
at the time of the attack, was
the only one of the children to
survive.
The three killers shared a
joke with shop staff before the
attack last December 11 as
they bought a jerry can and
beer bottles.

the tops with tissue paper as
they prepared the attack.
At 5am they struck, smashing the kitchen window of Mrs
Pearson’s home then throwing
the two lit petrol bombs
inside.
Bolland’s bottle exploded
near the stairs, blocking the
only exit to the ground floor
and trapping the victims
upstairs.

and
demanded £500 – warning he

Bolland and Worrall spent

other into action, the court
heard, with Bolland threatening to “kill ’em all”.
Heartbreaking
accounts
read out in court described
how firefighters were too late
to save the youngsters.

Brandon was found face
down on his bedroom floor
as if trying to crawl out with
Lacie dead directly behind, as
if following him.
Demi was found on a bunk
bed, hands stretched out to
the window as if trying to open
it, while little Lia was found in
the bath.
She was brought out alive
but died two days later in
hospital.
Bolland and Brierley were
arrested later that day, while
Worrall was seized “shaking
profusely” the day after.
Bolland admitted throwing
a Molotov cocktail but “only to
damage the house”. Worrall
said he thought they were only
going to set fire to wheelie bins,
while Brierley denied knowing
the men had petrol bombs.
Relatives of the lost children
screamed “yes” as the jury
returned unanimous verdicts
after three days of deliberating.
Although out of her coma,
Mrs Pearson remains seriously
ill. Grandmother Sandra Lever
said of the four dead youngsters: “They were lovely, quiet
children.”
Outside court, Detective
Chief Inspector Lewis Hughes
of Greater Manchester Police
said: “This is one of the most
heartbreaking cases I have
ever dealt with.”
HOW A PETTY FEUD LED TO
AN ARSON ATTACK THAT
KILLED FOUR INNOCENTS
A ‘PETTY’ feud between Zak Bolland
and Kyle Pearson last year led to the
fatal petrol bomb attack.
● November 25: Bolland’s car is set
alight. He blames Kyle and demands
money, texting Michelle Pearson: ‘Fire
letter box I want my £500.’
● November 26: Bolland uses a
hammer to smash the front windows
and panes of glass in the front door
of Mrs Pearson’s home.
● Later that day: Kyle, his brother and
two friends, all armed with clubs and
hammers, smash windows at Bolland’s
mother’s home.
● December 1: Bolland goes to the
Pearson house, taunting Mrs Pearson
and saying he had escaped police
action for breaking her windows.
● December 9: Shortly before 6am
Mrs Pearson’s wheelie bin is set on
fire and ‘Grass’ spray-painted on her
house.
● December 10: Bolland and Brierley
are joined by David Worrall and
others, buying two cases of beer
from a local shop at 10.27pm.
● December 11: 0.40am Bolland,
Worrall and others ‘kick off’ at
Jackson Street. Worrall threatens to
‘kill ’em all’.
● 3.30am Bolland, Brierley and
Worrall buy a case of lager and a
bottle of wine from a local garage.
● 4.33am: Bolland and Worrall pay
£1.50 for 1.23 litres of unleaded
petrol from a local garage.
● 4.54am: Bolland and Worral lift a
garden fence panel at the back of
8 Jackson Street. Seconds later the
flares of two petrol bombs are caught
on a CCTV camera.

MADNESS OF MUM APPLYING MASCARA BEHIND WHEEL AT 40MPH
By John Chapman
A DRIVER applies her mascara while
speeding along at 40mph – with a
young child on her back seat.
Police say it is a classic example of
irresponsible behaviour at the wheel.
The blonde was caught on a CCTV
camera looking in the mirror of her
sun visor rather than the busy dual
carriageway ahead of her.
Using a brush which she held in her
right hand, she carefully applied the
mascara to her lashes while the
make-up tube was held in her other
hand against the steering wheel.
The unnamed woman was driving
in traffic in Bournemouth. Her child,
thought to be around three years old,
was in a car seat behind her.
Sergeant Mark Farrow of Dorset
Police said: “Putting make-up on
while driving is simply irresponsible.
You are effectively behind the wheel
of a lethal weapon and could kill
someone.”

Call for warnings
on sugary drinks
SUGARY soft drinks should be labelled with graphic
health warnings to combat the obesity crisis,
­scientists have claimed.
Images of decaying teeth and serious warnings
about health risks successfully put people off the
heavily sweetened drinks, a study has found.
Experts are now calling for warnings, similar to
those found on cigarette packets, to be put on cans
and bottles to halt the obesity epidemic.
The Australian research involved 1,000 adults
aged 18 to 35, who chose drinks featuring a variety of
warnings on their packaging or no labelling at all.
Participants were 36 per cent less likely to buy
sugary drinks that carried an image of rotting teeth.
And they were 20 per cent more likely to choose
more healthily when drinks carried star ratings.
Professor Anna Peeters, lead author from Deakin
University in Victoria, Australia, said: “There is a
compelling case for the introduction of front-of-pack
labels on sugary drinks worldwide.”
The research will be presented at the European
Congress on Obesity in Austria this weekend.

SHE went on to become a

The Australian singer, who

by sharing a selection of
previously unseen intimate

In one a young Kylie Minogue
is seen posing for her uncle

1970s Melbourne.
Kylie joked with fans that at
the time she had no idea she

shot to fame at 18 as Charlene

A FOUL-mouthed English teacher
who branded her pupils “*******
idiots” has been banned from the
classroom.
Elizabeth Woods, 39, also referred
to her tutor group as “*****”, a
professional conduct panel heard,
made a finger gesture at a pupil
and called her white board marker
the “magic pen of sex”.
Her behaviour came to light in
2016 when a pupil at Hornsea
School and Language College, East
Yorkshire, said she had made an
obscene gesture towards him.
He told the panel he had knocked
on her classroom door to get back
in after he had been told to leave
the room and Ms Woods, who had
her back to him, raised a hand and
made the gesture.
Ms Woods said she was pointing
the boy out of the classroom, but
the panel found against her. In an
investigation, other pupils told of
her “inappropriate” language.
A pupil told the panel he was
asked to leave the classroom and as

he did, he heard Ms Woods shout:
“Am I surrounded by ******* idiots?”
He said he was shocked, along with
the class, which fell silent.
Ms Woods accepted she “may
have used inappropriate language”
and in an earlier disciplinary meeting, said she may have used the
term “idiots” under her breath, but
denied swearing.
Ms Woods, who was employed at
the school in 2013, was also accused
of telling pupils to “**** off” and
letting students leave the school
when under her care. That was not
proven, nor was an allegation she
said a pupil had a “big willy”.
In a statement read to the panel,
Ms Woods said that she “very
much regrets failing students” at
Hornsea and hoped “the option to
teach would remain open to me in
the future”.
The panel said her behaviour
amounted to “misconduct of a serious nature which fell significantly
short of the standards expected”.
She was banned from teaching
indefinitely, but can apply for the
order to be removed in four years.

LEARNING THE ROPES: Nigel Pivaro, right, joins the crew of
the Relentless II at Poole harbour in Dorset
SCALES OF
JUSTICE ARE
TIPPING
AGAINST OUR
FISHERMEN
Coronation Street actor-turned-journalist
NIGEL PIVARO takes to the sea to investigate
the state of the fishing industry post-Brexit
I
T IS not often that a land
lubber like me has the chance
to get on board a working
fishing boat to watch the
crew go about their business.
But last Thursday I was lucky
enough to join skipper Willy
Whitworth and Pete and Dave,
his two-man crew, aboard their
catamaran in Poole Harbour.
Ordinarily the crew would go
25 miles into the middle of the
English Channel to retrieve their
lobster pots. Today, however, is a
short run out from the world’s
second largest natural harbour
for the brief cuttlefish season.
Luckily for me it was a fine day
but even so the swell and everpresent smell of diesel fumes
coming up from the powerful
engine took some getting used to.
About three miles out Willy cut
the boat’s engines and joined
his crew on deck to retrieve the
metal cuttlefish traps off the sea
bottom.
After the rope connecting the
traps has been ensnared by Dave
with a grappling hook, the large
metal cages weighing more than
40lb each are pulled out of the sea
and their contents are emptied
into boxes.
Then the traps are manhandled
across the slippery surface to the
port side of the deck. This process is repeated until all the traps
– about 18 on each line – are
retrieved and emptied.
Once all the traps and lines are
aboard, the anchor on the seabed
that keeps them in place is cast
off the stern. Skipper Willy guns
the engines to full power and the
metal traps follow the anchor
back into the sea with up to 60
fathoms (360 feet) of rope unravelling like a giant ball of wool from
the deck.
Despite being an ardent fish
and seafood lover, I have to confess that I had rarely considered
the journey it undertook to get
from the sea to my plate.
But following the initial euphoria expressed by many fishermen
after the Brexit vote, I decided to
try to get a deeper understanding
of the industry from the fishermen themselves.
I discovered that the belief that
Brexit would mean more control
over our waters and fishing policy
had been replaced by a deep
scepticism that anything will
change.
The fear is that instead of
declaring an economically exclusive zone 12 miles out to sea
around the UK, the Government
will continue to subscribe to the
EU’s Common Fisheries Policy
with its myriad quotas and
restrictions and existing conces-
‘The politicians will
sell us out for some
other advantage –
we will be used as
a bargaining chip’
sions to EU-flagged boats from
Holland, Denmark, Spain, Belgium and France that fish deep in
our waters will continue.
In the past three weeks I have
travelled to Poole in Dorset,
Folkestone and Whitstable in
Kent and Grimsby in Lincolnshire and each port’s fishermen
have their own nuanced opinions
and problems.
Not all of them voted to come
out of the EU but they nearly all
feel they will be sold out by the
Government in the ongoing negotiations with Brussels.
Some, like retired trawlerman
Mick Hubbard of Grimsby, go
back further in their distrust of
politicians. He believes the deepsea fishing industry was sacrificed
for strategic reasons.
“The decline of the fishing fleets
in Fleetwood, Hull and Grimsby
goes back to losing three ‘Cod
Wars’ against the Icelanders,”
says Mick. “There were other
agendas and British trawlers were
not properly protected by the
Navy.
“It was the height of the Cold
War and I feel that the Americans
told the British Government to
lay off because they wanted to
maintain their air base at
Keflavik.”
Mick, who spent 20 years at sea,
adds: “When the UK joined the
Common Market a lot of the big
trawler owners could see no
future in deep-sea fishing, following the retreat from the Icelandic
waters, so they sold their boats
and licences and did very well out

FOLLOWING news of planned Marks &
Spencer store closures, Tory minister
Claire Perry felt the need to less than
subtly hint she was wearing underwear
from the clothing giant.
“Who among us isn’t touched by the
hand of M&S?” the 54-year-old announced
in the House of Commons yesterday. “In
fact, I counted up this morning I’m
wearing three items of M&S clothing. I will
not declare what they are!”
After Labour’s Ian Mearns later
confirmed in the chamber that his “boxer
shorts and socks” were from M&S,
Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom
remarked to Speaker John Bercow: “I am
tempted to say knickers but I’m not sure
whether you’d rule it out of order.”
WHILE Meghan Markle has given up acting for
her new life in the Royal Family, Prince Harry’s
former girlfriend Cressida Bonas continues to
suffer for her art.
The 29-year-old, who split
from Harry in 2014 – she
attended last weekend’s
royal wedding – was
recently cast in a new
London stage adaptation of
1930s play The Dog
Beneath The Skin. The
actress, pictured, now
recalls being “on stage for
two hours every night, wearing a boiler suit,
dog head and gas mask”.
Having since required treatment after
“hurting my knee playing on all fours” during
the production, Cressida vows in The
Spectator: “No more dog parts for me.”
A WEEK after he missed the FA Cup Final
to be at his brother’s wedding, Prince
William is expected to be at Wembley to
cheer on his beloved Aston Villa tomorrow.
With the West Midlands club having
reached a crucial play-off final against
Fulham for a place in next season’s
Premiership, the Prince has said he
“hopes” to be there.
Recalling how he came to support Villa,
William explained he wanted a team that
would provide “emotional rollercoaster
moments”.
COD WARS:
A Royal

a conflict
that some
believe saw
the UK’s
deep-sea
fishing
being
sacrificed
of it. But it was the end for thousands of fishermen in Grimsby
and what people forget is that it’s
not just the fishermen’s jobs that
go, it’s all the land-based jobs
as well.
“For every man at sea there are
10 at home. There are dockers,
boat-builders, shipwrights, chandlers, suppliers.”
A similar analysis of grand
strategy might be applied to the
debacle in British-owned waters
in the South Atlantic around
South Georgia recently.
Two British companies, SG
Fisheries and Fortuna Ltd, have
been denied licences to fish in
those waters in favour of Norwegian, Chilean and New Zealand
companies.
One cannot help thinking that
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson
has an eye on maintaining favourable relations with Chile in order
to keep an ally on a continent
where Argentina still claims
sovereignty over the Falkland
Islands.
The Norwegians of course may
well be useful if we attempt to
keep them onside in our negotiations with the EU. Oslo has already
warned Brussels that they do not
want to see the British awarded a
special trade deal.
Skipper Whitworth says: “The
trouble is, on paper the fishing
industry only represents a small
percentage of GDP, about half a
per cent.
“So the politicians will sell us
out like they did in 1973 for some
other advantage, we will be used
as a bargaining chip.”
“If that happens I do not see
any future for the British fishing
industry. There are too many
restrictions on what you can catch
and when you can catch it.
“The costs of setting up on your
own now are prohibitive. By the
time you have bought the boat,
the licence, the equipment and
insurance even for a small boat
you are looking at £350,000.”
Poole fish merchant Mark
Greenslade, who also owns a small
fleet of fishing boats, agrees.
“They should let the smaller boats
fish for what they want,” he says.
“They don’t do any damage. It’s
the large trawlers they should put
restrictions on.”
Mark also worries that too few
youngsters are coming into the
industry. “In the old days young
lads could jump on a boat for a
few days and give it a try,” he
explains. “It’s not for everybody. If
they did not take to it they would
shake hands and walk away. These
days they must pay for all the
health and safety certificates
before they set foot on a boat.
“These young lads are not going
to pay for certificates if they are
not sure it is the job for them.”
W
ORRYINGLY, the figures back up Mark’s
assertions. According
to a 2017 survey only two per cent
of fishermen are aged 20 or under
and 55 per cent are over 40.
In Folkestone small-boat skipper Paul Berrisford agrees we
need rules and regulations but
feels the authorities never listen
to the fishermen who know best.
“We are weighed down by rules
and the bureaucrats don’t know
what we know,” he says. “I’ve been
at sea for 40 years and I’m still
learning. Some of these people
setting the rules have never even
been to sea. Listen to the fishermen more, after all it is in our
interests to make sure the stocks
increase and are not over-fished.”
The owner of the local fish
market refused to go on camera
saying: “We have had the media
down here time and time again
and they never tell our story
correctly, we are always made to
look like the villains.”
As we spoke he was busy loading boxes of sea bass. “Locally
caught?” I asked.
“No, they were flown in from
Turkey then brought in by road
from the airport because we can’t
fish our own bass,” he replied,
with understandable anger.
Paul’s views were typical of the
many observations and protests I
heard over the past three weeks
which explains why Brian Foad,
skipper of two boats at Whitstable, says: “I can’t see any future
in the industry. We are the ones
suffering trying to pay our mortgages and pay off our boats.
“The way the Brexit negotiations are going they are dragging
it out and we will never take back
control of our waters. The state of
fishing today, if I could walk away
tomorrow I would.”
Let’s hope things improve
dramatically for the fishermen, for
their sake and ours, as the health
of the industry is so important to
the nation’s future food security.
If the 10,000 full-time fishermen
and their skills disappear, who can
we rely on in future to put fish on
our plates?
BREAKFAST TV foes Piers Morgan and Dan
Walker finally came face-to-face this week
during a celebrity golf match at Wentworth
Club in Surrey.
The BBC’s Walker, who regularly clashes
online with ITV’s Morgan over their shows’
respective viewing figures, was standing
near the latter on the 16th tee when he
inquired to the crowd: “Ladies and gentlemen,
can I just ask you, does anyone think Piers
Morgan is an idiot?” Walker was met with
enthusiastic cheers.
The pair have since been quarrelling about
who performed best at the event.
DISCUSSING the serious issue of
declining puffin numbers on the Farne
Islands off the coast of

countryside manager
Gwen Potter lightheartedly acknowledges
during a BBC interview:
“They do sound exactly
like Frankie Howerd.”
Hickey is also reliably
informed that the sound
of the eider duck bears an
uncanny resemblance to the late camp
comic, pictured.
ASKED about her formidable reputation, Dame
Diana Rigg, 79, insists: “I’m a pussycat…
except when I’m fighting for what I believe in.
Then I’m a tigress.”
Currently performing on the Broadway
stage in the US, the actress agrees she is
being offered more plum roles than ever as
she approaches 80. “It just hit me at a very old
age,” says Dame Diana. “One after the other!
I’m just sitting there saying, ‘Thank you very
much. What kept you?’”

boss stole
£700,000
AN Age Concern chief
executive has been jailed
for seven years for
pocketing £700,000 of
the charity’s money.
John Briers, 57, was
taking up to 20 per cent
of the gross income of
the charity’s South
Tyneside branch during
his eight-and-a-half year
fraud, Newcastle Crown
Court heard.
Briers wrote himself 60
cheques, gave himself 11
unauthorised bonuses
and 19 pension top-ups.
He also used fear
tactics to stop staff from
investigating too closely.
Judge Tim Gittins
said Briers had been
driven by “pure selfish
greed”.
Graham Cassidy, who
challenged Briers when
he spotted a false
invoice, told the court
the fraud has left the
branch struggling.
Briers, of Gateshead,
was convicted of three
counts of fraud earlier
this month. Hearings

THE biggest UK solo tour of all time
kicked off last night as 60,000 fans
crammed into Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium to welcome Ed Sheeran.
An astonishing 1.13 million tickets
have been sold for the singer’s monthlong 18-date Divide tour.
In dazzling sunshine, the gingerhaired superstar opened the show
shortly after 8.45pm.
With no backing band, just an array
of foot pedals to create his “loop
­station” backing tracks and a threequarter size acoustic guitar, Sheeran is
a man who is content to let his music
do the talking.
“Everything tonight is completely
live,” he insists before telling his story
from small hall gig to the “biggest show
I’ve ever played”.
The light show is impressive but
there are no mammoth “rock-star”
pyrotechnics to distract from the
stripped-back performance on stage.
And with no bandmates to rely on,
it really is a case of one man and his
guitar performing non-stop for over
two hours.
Of course it helps that with 21 top
ten singles – of which five claimed the
Number One slot – and three Number
One albums under his belt, the 27-yearold already boasts a back catalogue
many veteran stars can only dream of.

REVIEW
Paul Jeeves
But it is his latest album that dominates proceedings.
Kicking off with Castle On The Hill is
a masterstroke as the audience are
instantly nestled in the palm of his
hand, singing every word.
Then the first track from the popular
Divide album, Eraser, showcases his
rap skills before leading into old favourite The A-Team from 2011.
Just two days after the anniversary
of the Manchester Arena terror attack
there is an air of determination and
defiance among the crowd.
“It doesn’t matter if you are in tune
or not,” bellows the star.
It’s almost impossible for the mass
singalong to get any louder, but Galway
Girl and Shape Of You raises the volume beyond the levels achieved in the
stadium last month when Manchester
City clinched the Premier League title.
Ed’s appeal clearly trumps even the
excitement of football, and if every
show is as rousing and thumping as
this it is not hard to see why.

cycling 3,000
miles across
Brazil when
she fell ill
27
How love helped me to win
fight for life, by TV Charlie
EXCLUSIVE
By Giles Sheldrick
TV PRESENTER Charlie Webster has
revealed family is all that matters to her
now, after her brush with death.
The former Sky Sports star was given
24 hours to live after contracting malaria
during a bike ride in 2016.
Charlie, 35, had cycled 3,000 miles
across Brazil and was meant to be fronting TV coverage of the Olympic Games
in Rio. Instead, she was placed in a
coma and told she was dying.
Two years on from her ordeal, she
said: “The battles still go on in my
head, but when you are in that
situation you don’t give a damn about
anything other than the love you have
for other people.
“Now, I couldn’t care about my house,
material things, what I wear. It just
means nothing.
“The only thing that matters is to
have that love, feel needed and cared
for. To have it nearly end makes you
realise what’s really important.”
Sheffield-born Charlie was bitten by
a mosquito at the beginning of her epic
ride but had not taken anti-malaria
tablets after being told she did not need
them. As well as the mosquito virus, she
also got a condition called hemolytic
uremic syndrome, a rare complication
from a bacterial infection.
Within three days her kidneys had
failed and within a week her lungs had
collapsed. She was put on life support
and dialysis.
Her heartbroken mother Joy raced to

her bedside and was told her daughter
was probably going to die.
Charlie said: “I was fine until I arrived
and within 24 hours I was really severely
ill. I was meant to be presenting the
Olympics but ended up in the toilet on
the floor haemorrhaging.
“Even when I did go into hospital for
the first couple of days I was still texting
my agent saying, ‘Tell them I’ll be in
tomorrow.’
“Then, two or three days later, I was
told I was going to die. I’ll never forget
this guy pulling the curtain back and in
broken English saying, ‘We need to
move you to another hospital immediately. Your kidneys have failed, your
lungs are collapsing and we need to get
you a blood transfusion. You are dying’.
Then it kind of sunk in.”
She added: “My mum got told I had
24 hours to live. I was dying. They had
to put a ventilator in because I had
stopped breathing.
“Looking at my mum when she
walked into the room and seeing her
face was so distressing. I started to cry
and wasn’t able to breathe.
“That’s when it hit me – I am going to
die and I really didn’t want to.”
Charlie now plays an active role in the
global fight to eradicate malaria, including working for the Commonwealth
malaria campaign Malaria Must Die.

Inglorious Goodwood limits drinking to four pints
By David Pilditch
Racegoers like these men at Royal Ascot have been frequently involved in brawls
By Cyril Dixon
A MOTHER and young daughter
trapped in the Grenfell Tower
inferno died holding each other
tight, their family has revealed.
Amal Ahmedin, 35, and threeyear-old Amaya Tuccu-Ahmedin
were found lying next to each other
on the 23rd floor lobby.
The Grenfell public inquiry heard
yesterday that Ms Ahmedin’s
husband Mohamednur Tuccu, 44,
also died after the blaze on June 14
last year. His body was discovered
by the nearby leisure centre.
The fire also claimed the life of
Amna Mahmud Idris – one of Ms
Ahmedin’s cousins. The 27-year-old
was visiting her family when the
blaze broke out.
Ms Ahmedin’s sister, Winta,
broke down as she recalled how
much she had been looking forward
to see her niece Amaya grow up into
an “amazing” person.
She told the inquiry how her sister
– who used to share a bedroom with
her when they were growing up –
would hold her tightly whenever she
had bad dreams.
She said: “I would hold her
(Amaya) tight just like Amal did to
me when I was a kid.
“And that’s where they were when
they were burned alive, holding
each other tight trying to squeeze
the nightmare away.
“To this day and the rest of my
life, I will never accept that they are
gone and I will never be able to see
them again. I will never be able to
GLORIOUS Goodwood has been
forced to crack down on rowdy
behaviour after a mass brawl left six
people in hospital.
Fans of the sport of kings will
now be rationed to four pints of beer
a day, the West Sussex racecourse
said yesterday.
Security has also been stepped up
after shocking video footage of the
violence earlier this month.
Images showed a man being kicked
in the head as he lay helpless.
Zero tolerance measures taken to
ensure spectators concentrate on the
horses rather than on fighting among
themselves include having police
with sniffer dogs at every fixture.
Security teams will be in place for
the three days of Glorious Goodwood
at the end of July, which has been a
key date in the Queen’s calendar.
The violence at Goodwood was
among a series of high-profile
racecourse incidents recently.
A brawl at Ascot occurred just
days later when two groups of men
fought while drunken behaviour was
seen on and off the course.

“I will continue planning Amaya’s
life – what she would be doing today,

18th, her 21st and the rest of her life.
We all miss them so much.”
Winta, whose last name was not
given, said “cheeky” Amaya was the
love of her sister’s life. “Motherhood
brought out a layer of her personality
that we were all in awe of,” she said,
adding that Ms Ahmedin’s capacity
to love was “unmatchable”.
She was joined by around a dozen
family members on the stage as she
made her tribute.
Ibrahim Toukou – Mr Tuccu’s
brother – also told of his devastation
that he and his sibling were unable
to get together with their families.
In a pre-recorded message from
his home in Saudi Arabia, he
explained that his daughter, now
seven, was desperate to meet Amaya
and would kiss photographs of her
young cousin.
Mr Toukou, who kept in touch
with his brother on Facebook, said:
“I used to dream of being reunited.
When I heard the news of the fire, I
was just praying they would be alive
so we could have a chance to meet
at least once as a family.”
He said he had not told his
children of their relatives’ deaths,
instead telling them the trio had
gone on a trip.

the time, around the late1990s and early-2000s.
“As I was very pale, I needed
to go on quite often as my tan
would fade quickly.”
Emma, a businesswoman
from Preston, cut out sunbeds
a few years ago when her skin
began to wrinkle.
Then last summer a mole on
her back started to itch.
Emma said: “I didn’t think
much of it at the time but then
one day I realised there was a
bit of blood.
“It was on my lower back
in an extremely awkward
position but with a mirror I
managed to see that it was
looking a little different.
“I talked to my partner and
he agreed that it had definitely
changed.”
Fearing that she might be
bothering her GP with “something trivial”, Emma turned to
a phone app called SkinVision,
designed to track moles that
could become cancerous.
The app prompted her to
see her GP, who sent her
straight to a specialist. She
said: “He told me, ‘If you have
a sunbed at home, go straight
home and give it away to your
worst enemy’.” Tests showed
Emma’s mole was a basal cell
carcinoma, a skin cancer
caused by UV light.
She had an area of skin the
size of a 10p piece removed.
Emma, who has now been
given the all-clear, said: “I
embrace my pale skin now
and protect it with factor 50.
“I feel quite silly now for
doing what I did to my skin.”
Erik de Heus, of SkinVision,
said: “I am happy we had the
chance to support Emma in
her journey from checking a
mole to proper treatment.”

SCANDAL OF THE
SKYPE FAMILIES
Daily Express Friday May 25 2018
By Dominic Utton
A
LL Tom Shelton wants is
to be with his family. He
wants to hold his wife. He
wants to hug the boy who
calls him Daddy. But he’s
not allowed to – because
he doesn’t earn enough money and
his wife is from “the wrong part of
the world”.
The Home Office, whose rules
are keeping Tom apart from wife
Annie and her six-year-old son
Dandan, has told him instead that
he should maintain his family life
by “modern means of communication”, bureaucrat-speak for chatting
by Skype, or Facebook Messenger.
Tom is currently working as a
self-employed plasterer in County
Durham. Annie and Dandan are
6,500 miles away in the Philippines.
“I’m looking at an indefinite
period of time when I cannot be
with my wife and child,” he says.
“Every day I go to bed without my
family, every day I wake up without
them.
“I’m not coping very well. I’ve
lost quite a few days work because
I can’t face going in. I was driving
to a job recently and a song came
on the radio and I burst into tears
and had to pull over. It’s like grief.
“At least Annie and I can try to
understand but our little boy, he
just misses his daddy. The other
day he said, ‘I wish daddy was here
so I could share my pizza with him.’
I just burst into tears.”
Tom met Annie in 2013 while
selling property in Asia. They fell in
love and eight months later were
married in the Seychelles in a ceremony recognised under British
law. And for a while things were
wonderful.
“I had a dream life,” he says.
“Dandan, who was Annie’s little
boy from a previous relationship,
was just one at the time and we
really bonded… and never for a
moment did I anticipate any issues
with UK immigration. I’m a British
citizen, they’re my family, why
would I?”
It was when they planned a trip
back to Britain to introduce Annie
and Dandan to Tom’s family that
the problems started.
“While I went home to make the
visa arrangements, she returned to
the Philippines,” he says.

U
NDER laws introduced in
2012 when Theresa May
was home secretary, British
citizens applying for a visa for a
spouse are required to have an
income of at least £18,600 per year.
At the time, money wasn’t a
problem.
“I had some savings so we fulfilled all the financial requirements,” he says. “So when her visa
was rejected we were very surprised. The reason the officer gave
was they didn’t believe Annie
showed sufficient evidence of wishing to return to the Philippines
because she didn’t have any property in her name.”
Perplexed, Tom spent another
£5,000 applying for a second time,
as well as buying some land in the
Philippines. Again they were
rejected. “By this time the process
had taken four months – and we’re
newly married, we wanted to be
together, we were like: for God’s
sake, what’s going on?” he says.
By the time their third application was rejected, Tom had spent
nearly £20,000 on fees and collecting the necessary evidence to prove
they were a genuine couple.
“The third rejection also said
that I no longer had the financial
capability to look after my family!”
he says. “We’d spent six months on
this during which time I’d been
unemployed, so it was eating into
my savings. And then there’s the
cost of all the applications and
fees.”
Desperately missing his wife and
child, “and just too disillusioned
Home Office rules mean thousands of couples
and their children are being forced to live apart
with traumatic consequences for all concerned
with the Government”, Tom spent
the last of his money moving to the
Philippines where they bought a
farm and tried to forge a new life.
But after a series of misadventures,
including
their
house
being
destroyed by a typhoon and the
theft of their livestock by gangsters,
the couple were left penniless.
Broke and desperate, Tom returned
to the UK alone.
“Without those three rejections
our lives would have been so different,” he says. “All they had to do
was let her visit. I wanted her to
meet my family – and then we’d fly
off to our next dream job and all
would be lovely. Instead we’re in
this horrible situation.”
Tom and Annie are now forced to
communicate by Skype and Facebook Messenger as he once again
tries to petition for her visa. “This
has been the worst time of my life,”
he says.
For Gillian Thies, immigration
laws have been similarly inflexible.
When she and American doctor
husband Patrick moved back to
Britain in 2016 after 19 years in the
US, their two adopted sons Ben
and Edward, then 13 and 11, were
denied entry to the country.
“My husband had a visa to work
for the NHS and my youngest son
has dual nationality, but the other
two were adopted and it seems the
laws are different for adopted
children,” she says.
Immigration officials at Heathrow not only stopped the boys,
Gillian says they even booked them
a flight back to America – most
extraordinarily, without any provision for what they were to do when
they got there.
“They were prepared to just send
them off alone,” she says. “They
were 13 and 11 – how could they let
children of that age do that by
themselves?”
Eventually, the family secured a
lawyer and managed to get sixmonth visitor visas for Ben and
Edward – but when they applied for
full residency they were once again
rejected. The letter informing them
of the decision gave the helpful
advice to continue their (transatlantic) family life via “modern
communication channels”.
Gillian is still astounded that the
Home Office should consider a
Skype call an effective way of maintaining a relationship with your
children. “It’s ridiculous,” she says.
“Obviously that’s not how you live
a family life.”
The Thies family managed to get
the judgment overturned after
going public with their case. The
day they were featured on the BBC,
says Gillian, she got an email asking: “Which visa would you like?”
She remains furious that the
situation ever arose at all. “There
are so many massive abuses here,”
she says. “They were just children.
What’s the security risk? The attitude was: deny them entry, send
them away and then it’s not our
problem any more. I want an apology from Theresa May. The whole
thing is absolutely outrageous. I
don’t know anybody who thinks it’s
right to deport children.”
F
OR Tom Shelton, however,
the agony continues. Now
struggling even to meet the
minimum income required for a
visa for his wife and child, let alone
the £5,000 application fee, he
confesses he can’t see a way to be
with his family.
“I’m separated from Annie and
Dandan by this minimum income
requirement and the hostile Home
Office attitude,” he says. “I’m
convinced they’re trying to find
reasons to reject non-EU spouses
purely to keep immigration numbers down and hit targets.
“Dandan is just a little lad, he has
just turned six and I missed his
birthday. We talked over Messenger
and that was it. I’ve got my fouryear wedding anniversary coming
up on June 7 and I’m going to miss
that too.
“Everyone has a right to a family
life – and that’s being denied us.”

MY eight-year-old English bull terrier
Q
has been sleeping a lot in the sunshine.
Can this cause skin cancer?
A
IT is worth checking with your vet
first to see if there is any cause for the
dog sleeping more. Regarding skin cancer,
English bull terriers are indeed at risk.
While I have come across many cases in
white-haired cats, I have seen fewer cases
in English bull terriers.
Yet it is likely that as our summers get
hotter, the number will increase. In
sunnier climates, particularly Australia,
skin cancer in bull terriers is common.
Dogs that like to sunbathe are at risk,
especially on white areas of skin that lack
the protective skin pigment melanin.
The cause is UV light from the sun, as it
is with people, and hairless parts of the
body are also prone.
In white bull terriers virtually any part
of the body can develop skin cancer but it
is most commonly found on their sides,
abdomen, ears, eyelids and nose.
The good news is the cancer develops
slowly therefore if caught early can be
cured by surgical removal. But prevention
is far better.
Don’t allow your dog to sunbathe and
on hot days walk them in the mornings
and evenings away from the sun’s rays.

Generations at
brawling point
constraints of gender identity. Get
the picture? Brand’s play is
transparently schematic.
As the three generations of
women fight and reconcile,
exposing buried resentments and
thwarted hopes, their maternal
feelings (or lack of them) rise to the
surface and blame is apportioned
indiscriminately.
Eleanor blames Suzanne for
stalling her career by being such a
needy child. Suzanne blames her
for being a bad mother who drank
herself out of a teaching job. Laurie
attempts to act as peacemaker but
her language and attitudes are
often beyond the understanding of
the older women.
When Eleanor reveals she’s in the
throes of a Shirley Valentine affair
and moving to Puglia, the gloves
come off. Drink is drunk. Laurie
demonstrates the future of the
sexless reproductive process with
an ice bucket, a champagne flute
and an olive.
But when the women have
exhausted themselves with fighting,
tears and confessions, they bond
over a shared hamburger and chips.
The performances outshine the
material. Dobson is spectacularly
good as Eleanor, delivering her
put-downs like velvet-covered
barbs. Chazen is convincing as a
woman who has lived her entire life
in the shadow of her aspirational
mother and turned to crystals,
tie-dyeing and visualisation for
survival.
Richardson-Sellers has the
difficult task of making Laurie an
actual person as opposed to a set of
“yoof” attitudes and she almost
succeeds.
Those three stars are for the
performances, not for the play.

Is it a reality show? Is it a
psychological experiment? No,
it’s a job interview.
In fact, Jordi Galceran’s clever
play incorporates all these elements
as he puts four candidates through
a Kafkaesque selection process for
a post in a Fortune 500 company.
The first trick is that one of the
quartet is a plant: an undercover
agent from Human Resources.
Is it the arrogant, blustering
Frank (Jonathan Cake) or the
nervous, ordinary Rick (John
Gordon Sinclair)? Perhaps it’s the
sly and affable Carl (Greg McHugh)
or the smart, cucumber-cool
Melanie (Laura Pitt-Pulford)?
The battleground is the white
leather, glass and chrome of a
corporate boardroom where the
combatants circle each other
looking for a weakness and trying
to distinguish truth from lies. Mind
games and challenges are
prompted by cards that appear
from a drawer in the wall that
opens and closes by itself.
Written in 2003, this Catalan
play has been translated into 20
languages and performed in more
than 60 countries. The secret of its
success is its universality. Everyone
has been through the interview
process and will recognise the
anxiety, competitiveness and fake
“may the best man win” bonhomie.
Near the end of a sharp, compact
90 minutes, Galceran accelerates
the twists to thriller speed.
The cast is exemplary from
Sinclair’s hokey Rick to Laura
Pitt-Pulford’s cool professional
Melanie who
finally resorts to
feminine guile,
letting down her
flame red hair.
With touches of
David Mamet’s
con artistry and
Pinter’s sinister
claustrophobia,
this is wickedly
funny and keeps
you guessing until
the closing line.
Sharply amusing
and a little scary.

Weekend Films
By Andy Lea
Solo: A Star Wars Story
HHH
(Cert 12A, 135mins)
T
he origins movie of
Star Wars character
Han Solo has a
backstory as troubled
as its world-weary
hero. The production
was almost complete when its
star Alden Ehrenreich was
obliged to take emergency acting
lessons and original directors
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller
were sacked and replaced with
veteran Ron Howard. But there
is no sign of the film’s fraught
history in this solid spin-off.
However, whether you enjoy
Howard’s trip to a galaxy far, far
away will depend on what you
want from a Star Wars
adventure.
If you’re after slick action
scenes, spectacular special
effects and exhaustive
explanations for every reference
to a key character’s past, this is
the blockbuster you’ve been
looking for.
But if you enjoyed the way
Rian Johnson played fast and
loose with the franchise’s
mythology in The Last Jedi, you
might feel a little underwhelmed
by The Da Vinci Code director’s
rather unadventurous approach.
Solo opens on the shipbuilding
planet of Corellia where Han is
running scams for his Fagin-like
boss, a giant space grub called
Lady Proxima.
He manages to flee her
clutches in a well-staged if rather
familiar flying car chase but is
forced to leave behind fellow
orphan and sweetheart Qi’ra
(Emilia Clarke).
When we jump forward three
years, he is now an Empire
infantry grunt, dodging laser fire
in a muddy trench and dreaming
of a reunion with Qi’ra.
He sees a way out when he
befriends a Wookiee called
Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo)
and talks his way into a gang of
outlaws led by the pistol-twirling
Beckett (Woody Harrelson).
Here the origins movie begins
to morph into a cowboy heist
movie. After a thrilling train
robbery goes awry, the outlaws
find themselves in hock to Paul
Bettany’s mobster who to Han’s
surprise turns up with the now
not-so-innocent Qi’ra on his arm.
S
he offers some help
as Han comes up with a
daring plan to clear
their debt. They win a spaceship
in a card game with gambler
Lando Calrissian (a charismatic
Donald Glover) and use it to pull
off a near-impossible heist on the
mining planet of Kessel.
It is arguably impressive how
the script, written by
father‑and‑son team Jon and
Lawrence Kasdan, expands
Solo’s backstory. By the end we
know how Han and Chewbacca
became pals and how Han got
his spaceship, his blaster and
even his surname. But did we
really want to see every mystery
about Harrison Ford’s
hard‑boiled hero stripped away?
Ehrenreich’s performance
serves the plot well enough. He is
all goofy charm and bouncy
enthusiasm so we know
something will happen to turn
him into the grumpy cynic we
met in the first Star Wars film.
But a more adventurous film
might have delivered a few more
surprises.

LEAD ROLE: Will Arnett in Show Dogs
Show Dogs HHH
(Cert PG, 92 mins)
Miss Congeniality gets a decidedly hairy
makeover in a barking family comedy.
A macho rottweiler police dog (voiced by
rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) is forced
to partner up with human FBI agent
Frank (Will Arnett) and go undercover at
a Las Vegas dog show used as a front for
trafficking exotic animals.
This is not director Raja Gosnell’s first
dog show. After two live-action
Scooby-Doo films and Beverly Hills
Chihuahua, he knows that slapstick and
rude jokes are the easiest ways to get
children to roll over.
Parents might find themselves
whimpering to be let off the leash until a
French dog called Philippe flounces on to
the stage. Stanley Tucci’s wonderfully
camp voice performance should make
adults sit up and stay.
based on the books of Angela
Sommer-Bodenburg and tells
the story of an American boy
who makes an unusual friend
while holidaying with his parents
in the Black Forest.
Shortly after noting the
strange garlic obsession of their
German hosts, Tony Thompson
(voiced by Amy Saville) gets a
flying visit from Rudolph
(Rasmus Hardiker), a vampire
whose 300th celebration of his
13th birthday was interrupted by
a vampire hunter (Downton
Abbey actor Jim Carter).
The dialogue is flat and the
animation is workmanlike but it
is quirky and pacy enough to
keep younger children quiet.

Edie HHH
(Cert 12A, 101mins)
Like Finding Your Feet, Quartet
and The Best Exotic Marigold
Hotel, Edie is a British drama
about a pensioner who finds a
new lease of life. Edie (Sheila
Hancock) refuses to go quietly
when her controlling husband
dies and her daughter packs her
off to a retirement home. She
runs away to fulfil an ambition:
to climb Mount Suilven in the
Highlands.
Luckily when she arrives at
Inverness train station, the first
person she bumps into is
big-hearted camping shop owner
and experienced climber Jonny
(Kevin Guthrie). After some
persuasion he agrees to prepare
her for the expedition. The
dialogue can be heavy‑handed
and the banter weak but a
sprightly performance from its
85-year-old star ensures it peaks
with a touching finale.
The Breadwinner
HHHH
(Cert 12A, 93mins)
IRELAND’S Cartoon Saloon has
already received two Oscar
nominations for The Secret Of
Kells and Song Of The Sea and
this gritty animation about life
under the Taliban deserves to
make it a hat-trick.
It is based on Deborah Ellis’s
award-winning young adult novel
and tells the compelling story of
a resourceful 11-year-old Afghan
girl called Parvana. After her
father is imprisoned she cuts her
hair short and dresses as a boy
so she can provide for her
mother and two siblings.
Visually the film is hugely
impressive. For the main
narrative, director Nora Twomey
employs the hand-drawn
animation used to such poetic
effect by the studio’s previous
Oscar-nominated films.
But whenever Parvana seeks
refuge in storytelling, we switch
to a more folksy cut-out style of
traditional puppet theatre.
The Breadwinner is clever,
beautiful and extremely powerful
but parents should take note of
the 12A rating. If your children
are especially sensitive, this will
make for a very challenging trip
to the cinema.

The Brighton Mermaid
HHHHH
by Dorothy Koomson
Century, £12.99
One night in 1993, teenagers
Nell and Jude sneak out without
their parents’ knowledge to go to
a party thrown by a local boy.
They are making their way home
across Brighton beach in the
early hours when they discover a
body on the sand.
This young woman is never
identified and she becomes
known as the Brighton Mermaid.
But the discovery of her body
changes Nell and Jude’s lives.
The police are convinced that
Nell and her family are
connected to the death. Then
Jude disappears.
In the present day, Nell is still
obsessed with the Brighton
Mermaid and with Jude’s
disappearance. She gives up
work to spend every minute
online, in search of someone,
anyone, who may hold a clue to
the identity of the mermaid and
to Jude’s disappearance. And
she gradually uncovers a dark
story that people with vested
interests want to keep secret.
The Brighton Mermaid is a
mystery story, a crime thriller
and a fascinating exploration of
relationships, showing how a
single event can affect so many
lives for so long.
Koomson’s characters are
perfectly formed yet flawed,
showing her acute insight into
the human psyche.
Thanks to their depth and

story. It is a tale of friendship
that survives a decade until the
actions of Freya’s husband Paul
and Hamad’s glamorous
girlfriend Racine threaten to
destroy their lives and their
friendships for ever.
Annabelle Thorpe’s novel
opens with wealthy Hamad
making Freya and Paul a
generous offer in a bid to repair
their crumbling marriage. He
asks the couple to move to
Marrakech where Paul, an
architect, can redesign three
historic houses which Hamad
bought for Racine in a desperate
bid to win back her love.
To Freya he offers an even
more tantalising gift: the
opportunity to experience
adventure and to write the
biography of his grandmother
Dame Edith, an exotic
adventuress.
But Edith’s secrets could
unravel his life and challenge
everything he holds to be true.
As Freya is drawn into
Morocco’s exotic world, Paul
grows distant. Soon she is
questioning whether he has been
unfaithful and whether she
should be too.
Then Racine goes missing and
when the truth is revealed it
threatens to destroy them all.

Headline Review, £18.99
Juno Ryan watches the
evening news and her world
collapses around her. She is left
devastated by a tragedy and a
betrayal and struggles to
understand how she was so
cruelly misled.
Juno is a radiographer and she
knows she needs time out from
her job when she breaks down
sobbing on one of her patients.
So when her friend Pilar offers
her the use of a family villa in the
small town of Beniflor in Spain,
Juno accepts.
Villa Naranja is not quite the
luxury bolthole she had hoped
for but she soon settles into a
quiet, peaceful life with a cat
named Banquo. The tranquillity
of the villa, set among the orange
trees, aids the healing process.
Juno begins to feel at home
even though she is something
of a mystery to the local
community.
But when she administers
emergency first aid to a small
boy in the town square she
becomes a hero, embraced by
the local community. This is a
tale of betrayal and grief with
a dash of romance in the shape
of Pep, the handsome pool
maintenance man, and a cast
of colourful characters.
The sultry Spanish location is
wonderfully escapist, making

Lorna lives in London (boo,

his infidelities affect the children

Into this maelstrom steps
Madeline, the daughter of Tony’s

background of neglect and abuse
contributes to a tragedy which

In adulthood Cordelia

she damages her voice and she

Vintage, £8.99
I am a real prude and this is
totally filthy – but hysterical.
I love American Jewish humour.
Roth – who died this week
– hilariously portrays this guy
trying to reconcile his libido
with his strict family background.
A coming-of-age classic.

MARVIN GAYE: What’s Going On
(Motown)
This inspired me to write
the album The Architect
which is about the demise
of community.
We live in a generation
where people are
apolitical and
over‑sensitive so it was
difficult to start a
political conversation
without alienating people.
This was the benchmark
album for me because he does it
in an inclusive and ambiguous way.
NINA SIMONE: Baltimore
(Sony)
This conjures up memories of my
youth. I was raised by my mum who’s
quite a free spirit. She has no rhythm
whatsoever but she was so beautiful
singing out of time to this.
Simone spoke about social/political
subjects and was an empowering
symbol for a young girl – intelligent
and talented.
ERYKAH BADU: Mama’s Gun
(Universal/Island)
I’d always loved R&B then the
neo-soul movement happened. It was
inspiring because it had a depth to it,
like the soul I’d grown up listening to.
She spoke about issues that
appealed to me.
MILES DAVIS: Kind Of Blue
(Sony)
My dad was a jazz fanatic and every
weekend I’d go to his house and he’d
ask me to choose a letter. Then he’d
go to that section in his
massive vinyl collection.
We always returned to
this one. It defined my
relationship with my
father but I came to
understand it in a
musical way.
TRACY CHAPMAN:
Tracy Chapman
(Rhino)
I used to do a lot of road trips
with my mum and my stepdad
as a kid. We’d often play this.
I remember laying on the back seat,
feeling the movement of the car and
knowing this word for word.
AMY WINEHOUSE: Back To Black
(Island)
Amy is almost the thread that ties
my musical influences together.
She had the right mix of what
we love from a bygone era and
a contemporary style of writing.
I’ve tried, but she was the only one
who could sing about having a kebab
and make it sound romantic. She left
us with a perfect album.

BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT
BY GORDON SMITH
PUBLISHED BY CORONET
As a leading medium Gordon Smith is part of an
‘apostolic succession’ of mediums that goes back
through famous mediums like Albert Best, Helen Duncan
and DD Hume to the start of Spiritualism modern times
in American in the mid nineteenth century. In this book
he examines the historical evidence, admitting fraud
where he finds it, but showing that great weight of
testimony proves the reality of these supernatural and
spiritual phenomena ‘beyond reasonable doubt’. As
leading barrister Maria Ahern writes in her foreword:
‘I have assessed the evidence in this book’.

System designed to find a
winner instead of truth
WHILE there is little doubt that
our police are understaffed and
under-resourced, the real reason
for this latest near tragedy is a legal
system that isn’t designed to find
the truth but to find a winner.
This ensures that our lawyers
stay rich and that too many
innocent people without money do
not get the best deal.
Not only that but it remains in
the best interests of the police and
the prosecution to withhold vital
evidence.
David Levens,
Alfreton, Derbys
Pressure to ‘solve’ crime
and CPS are the problem
SPEAKING as a former police
officer I believe that there are two
reasons why evidence for the
defence is not disclosed to defence
lawyers.
The first is that the police,
despite suffering savage cuts to
funding and manpower, are still
expected to maintain a consistently
high level of detection and
prosecution of crime.
The second is the Crown
Prosecution Service, which decides
whether or not cases are
prosecuted.
In the case of Robert Adlington
there has clearly been a massive
slip-up and the person responsible
should be sacked and prosecuted.
I am certain that if a junior police
officer was at fault he or she would
be immediately dealt with severely.

Driffield, E Yorks
Elderly’s experience and
wisdom are being wasted
CONGRATULATIONS for your
excellent report on the scourge
against the elderly (“Support grows
to create a Minister for Elderly”,
May 24).
Throughout history in the great
civilisations the elderly were and
are at the epicentre.
They are naturally a treasure
chest of experience and wisdom,
which tragically our “modern”
society prevents the younger
generations from benefiting from
as they are elevated to a pedestal.
The elderly themselves must
share the blame for this tragedy, as
over the last 50 years most of them
accepted, participated in or silently
went along with the destruction of
family traditions, for which we are
now paying a horrible price.
George Tziattas,
Camden, London
Victim’s family have real
life sentence to endure
WHAT on earth is the matter with
this country (“ ‘An act of pure evil’ ”,
May 24)?
This dreadful woman’s actions
towards her former boyfriend were
so cowardly surely the word “life”
should mean life, not a mere 12
years.
That poor family is sentenced to
a life of misery, this Government
should think about bringing back
the death penalty.
Paul Clark,
Chard, Somerset
Whingers will always find
something to moan about
HERE we go again. Some idiot has
jumped on wood-burning stoves

I have had a wood-burning stove
for about six years and the chimney
is swept every 12 months, with very
little soot in it.
It can also do my central heating

Letter of the day
Javid must back
up his words with
cash and support
101 years old and still
extrapolating furiously...
M
I AM a retired senior police officer and I watch with utter
dismay as the failures by our prosecuting system
continue to unfold (“Jail hell over police rape blunder”,
May 24).
Former colleagues are faced with ever-increasing
difficulties primarily caused by decisions which have left
the police with low morale and with such dwindling
numbers that they are stretched beyond efficient working
practices.
The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, the
Police Federation, virtually every police and crime
commissioner and chief constable as well as the general
public all know this.
This may well be another incident of overworked police
and so, no doubt, we all hope that the new Home
Secretary Sajid Javid, in addressing the Police Federation
this week, means it when he says that he is listening and
will provide the support and resources they need.
Geoffrey Waddington,
Messingham, Lincs FUTURE: Home Secretary must improve things
and all 12 radiators if need be. I
fitted it as an alternative to my gas
boiler because gas is very dear and
wood was free at the time but not
any more as a lot more people have
now had one fitted.
Trees take out of the atmosphere
what a wood burner puts back, so
what is the problem?
But I suppose you can always
find a problem even if there isn’t
one if you’re a professional moaner.
John Mayer,

the aid budget is there and getting
bigger and we all know it. The right
thing to do would be to fund our
own services before we give away
money form our tax payments.
Yet this Government continues
to cut public services and suppress
pay increases to public employees
without even looking to remove the
ring fence around the aid budget.

Cut the foreign aid budget of a pure socialist state

before you raise our taxes JEREMY
Ireland promoting the IRA’s
BEFORE the Government
increases taxation on the British
public it first needs to justify the
massive foreign aid budget we have
(“Taxes ‘must rise to pay for care’ ”,
May 24).
Like the elephant in the corner,
ambition of a united Ireland
(“Corbyn is still fighting for a
united Ireland”, May 24).
If he gets into Number 10 will he
fulfil that ambition but take it
further and dissolve the UK
completely by giving Scotland and
DO POLDARK STARS DESERVE THE SAME PAY?
GOOD on Eleanor
Tomlinson for raising the
issue of the gender pay
gap on BBC drama Poldark (“Give
me equal pay with Poldark, says his
co-star Eleanor”, May 24).
The show has more than Aidan
Turner’s chest to thank for its
popularity and Eleanor has played
an equal role in its success.
I’m all for people being paid what
they are worth and you don’t
necessarily deserve pay equality
just because you are a woman.
But Eleanor and Aidan are now
both vital to Poldark’s success and
if she ever left the show it just
wouldn’t be the same.
Natalie Middleton,
Coventry
Yes
WHY is it that women
demand equal pay as
men, just because they
feel its unfair to be paid less?
When I started work everyone in
my department was paid what the
boss thought they were worth and
that meant everyone earnt
different amounts.
Some women earnt more than
me but that was because they were
more indispensable. I didn’t
complain about sexual equality, I
made myself better at my job.
Acting aside, Aidan Turner
deserves more cash because he is
the one who gets all the publicity
for the show.
John Maxwell,
Keighley, W Yorks
No
Wales their independence too? I
believe that is his aim; the
dissolution of the UK in name in
addition to its economic
destruction by John McDonnell’s
economic policies, in order to bring
about their dream of a pure
socialist state.
Michael Hilder,

Team pays the penalty of
having striker as captain
GARY Lineker says Harry Kane
will have no problems leading from
the front and your reporter
Matthew Dunn then says that
other strikers have led England
before and lists Kevin Keegan,
Lineker himself, and Alan Shearer
(“Prince Harry”, May 23).
Do people not see the trend
here? The teams captained by
those strikers won absolutely
nothing so making Kane captain is
just going down the same road.
I’m willing to bet that this
England squad will be home early
from the World Cup along with
their skipper.
Patrick Jones,
Ware, Herts
Bank of England policies
cost us more than Brexit
WITH regard to Mark Carney’s
claim that Brexit has cost every
household £900 (“Carney ‘crying
wolf’ on EU exit cost”, May 23), I
have to wonder how much the
Bank of England’s policies and
predictions have cost us over the
same period.

Ten things you never knew about... Douglas Adams WILLIAM HARTSTON
May 25 is Towel Day, an annual celebration of the
works of Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s
Guide To The Galaxy.
1. The first Towel Day was on May 25, 2001, which
was two weeks after Douglas Adams died aged 49.
2. The Hitchhiker books describe a towel as “the
most massively useful thing an interstellar
hitchhiker can have”.
3. Towel Day has been particularly celebrated in
Innsbruck, Austria, where Adams said he first had
the inspiration for The Hitchhiker’s Guide.
4. In 1974, Adams made two brief appearances in
Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
5. He also wrote three stories for Doctor Who and
was script editor of the series in 1979.
6. In 1994, Adams was photographed climbing
Kilimanjaro wearing a rhino suit to help raise
money for Save The Rhino.
7. “Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”
(Douglas Adams).
8. Adams played the guitar left-handed and had a
collection of 24 left-handed guitars.
9. Richard Dawkins dedicated his book The God
Delusion to Douglas Adams.
10. “The knack of flying is learning how to throw
yourself at the ground and miss.” (Douglas
Adams).
Y OlD friend Professor Norvus
Breakdown seemed in a rare
tizzy when I dropped in on him
for one of my occasional
briefings on scientific and sociological
advances. As your probably know, Prof
Breakdown is the incumbent of, and
more often than not recumbent in, the
Ikea Chair in Contemporary Lifestyle at
the University of North Brent (formerly
the Outer Neasden Cycling Proficiency
and Macramé Polytechnic) and has long
been my guide to modern trends.
On this occasion however he seemed
on the verge of despair.
“Beachcomber,” he sobbed as I
entered, “thank goodness you are
here. I don’t know where to turn. It
could be the end of civilization as we
know it.”
I must confess I didn’t have any idea
what he was referring to. “Let’s see
what we can do about it,” I said
reassuringly. “Now what’s the
problem? Global warming? Global
mailing? Donald Trump?”
“No, no, no,” he said dismissively.
“It’s far worse than any of those. It’s
Meghan.”
“Meghan?” I said. “That nice
American girl who I’m told married a
prince at the weekend? I know little
about it as I was at Glyndebourne
enjoying the opera and a picnic at the
time. I missed some football thing too.
It was a thoroughly well-spent
weekend as far as I was concerned.”
He glared and thrust a wodge of
papers at me filled with calculations.
“Look at these,” he commanded.
I looked at the top sheet and my
cheery disposition took a turn for the
worse. “Oh my sainted aunts,” I said.
“If this is what I think it is, then the
prospects are appalling.”
It is and they are,” he confirmed.
“The table on the top sheet charts the
rise in the number of times the name
‘Meghan’ appears in our database of
national newspapers in recent years. It
appeared not at all in 1996 or 1997,
only twice in 1998 and once in 1999.
The early years of the new
millennium saw a few more, but
nothing to worry about. From 2000 to
2007 the figures were 10, 14, 19, 8, 32,
13, 32, 30. In 2008 it shot up to 93, but
fell back to 27, 21, 52, and 44 in the
years from 2009-2012. Since then,
however, the rise has been inexorable:
113 in 2013, followed by 396, 654, 1,119,
and 3,836 from 2014-2017. This year, it
is already at 6,351, which is equal to a
full year figure of 16,211.
“Extrapolating these figures, I
predict that there will be over a million
Meghans in our papers in 2021 and the
number will pass a billion in 2032.”
“That’s horrific,” I said. “And I see
you’ve compared the rise of Meghans
with the slump in Slobodans. In 2007
there were 10 times as many Slobodans
as Meghans but now it is more than
200 Meghans per Slobodan. But I
should point out that there’s one really
good thing about it.”
“What’s that?” he asked. “I’m afraid
I don’t see it.”
“With a billion Meghans in the papers
in 2032, there will be no room for any
mention of Trump,” I said.
Slowly, his expression changed to a
big smile. He shook my hand warmly
and I left him to his calculations.

Sparks f lying at Marks
S
tupidly I signed up to do
one of those “complete a
survey and win a telly”
things and soon found
myself suffering flashbacks
to my O levels.
There were multiple choice
questions asking me to rate
packaging from 1 to 5 and other
questions that just sounded like
gibberish. “If your favoured brand
of toilet bleach was a person,” one
question pondered, “what kind of
personality would they have?”
Then again, as The Trouble
With M&S (Channel 5)
demonstrated last night, some
brands and stores do, in a weird
way, possess a personality. People,
including some of the contributors
to last night’s programme, tend to
be a bit snarky about Marks &
Spencer calling it the place where
Matt Baylis
on last
night’s TV
Middle England buys its knickers
and comparing it to Hyacinth
Bouquet. It would be fairer, I
believe, to think of the store as a
much-loved, slightly elderly family
dog. It’s always there, a gentle
companion at key life moments.
Your school blazer, your interview
suit, your holiday shorts, you
probably bought them there and
you probably remember buying
them there. There was no
suggestion that the family dog was
about to make a last, sad visit to
the vet but it was clear from
punters, shop staff, top brass and
rivals that things were going to
have to change if the store was
going to keep its market share.
The chain has always treated its
staff very well, one strange
consequence of that being that few
of them leave. People grow old in
M&S, meaning that according to
some, new blood doesn’t get as
much of a look-in as it deserves.
That might be why the under-30s
aren’t shopping there, they’re not
working there either.
A ray of hope, however, shines
through Marks and Spencer’s
underpants. Innovative, affordable
and still the market leader, M&S
underwear might lure in the
customers who have doubts and

Health: How To Get Fit Fast, 8pm, C4
If you made an new year’s resolution
to lose weight but are still carrying
your Christmas weight, you’re not
alone. It is reckoned that 80 per cent
of people fail to continue with their
new year’s resolutions to get fit. So
here, Anna Richardson (left) and

method of physical exercise that’s
right for them, bust the exercise myths
and offer shortcuts and hacks based
on up-to-date scientific research. In
the first of two programmes, Anna
finds out how a modern makeover of
the callisthenics fitness craze of the
1980s can build muscle without
having to spend hours on the weights
in the gym. Elsewhere, Amar tests
exercises that will fit into even the
shortest of lunch breaks.
Quiz: Have I Got News For
You, 9pm, BBC1
Having been broadcast
since 1990, this show has
cultivated a reputation for
sailing close to the wind
in matters of libel and
slander with its topical and
satirical remit. Have I Got
News For You is often
cited as beginning the
domination of panel shows
in British TV comedy and
remains one of the genre’s
key standard-bearers. Jo
Brand (left) hosts as
comedian Ross Noble and
journalist Mona Chalabi
reinforce the efforts of
regular team captains Ian
Hislop and Paul Merton.
This is an American buddy-cop comedy-drama show
developed by Matt Miller and it’s based on the film
series of the same name created by Shane Black. After
the fatal end to an argument on a construction site, the
squad works to untangle facts about the incident.
Meanwhile, Riggs struggles to rekindle his relationship

some weird quirk of space time, he
hadn’t, he would be 90 by now, and
he isn’t, or he looks suspiciously
good for his age.
When Komarov vanished from
the ship in last night’s duet of
episodes, the crew couldn’t
decide whether to look for him or
abandon him to the unforgiving
landscape.
The ship’s psychiatrist Jeanne
(Helene Vivies) believed she owed
the mystery man a favour as he’d
been her astronomer father’s hero.
Others pondered whether Komarov
was a plant.
In all this intense, Gallic debate,
complete with hand-waving and
shrugging, even out there in space,
not one of these mega brains
seemed ready to ask the obvious
question. How come the Russian
astronaut speaks fluent French?

Sky Cinema Action, 9.45pm
The Fast & Furious franchise shows no signs of
slowing down as the eighth instalment was the third
highest-grossing film last year, despite it being the
first one not to feature the late Paul Walker.
We catch up with Dom and Letty on their honeymoon
and with Brian and Mia having both retired from the
game, the rest of the crew also appear to be living
relatively normal lives. However, that is all about to
change once a mysterious woman seduces Dom back
into the world of crime, which he just cannot seem to
escape, and he soon betrays those closest to him.
Action sequel, with Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

Don’t be afraid to confess your

know where you stand than wonder what
might have been. If you’re in a relationship,
take this opportunity to show your love and
affection. A thoughtful gift could do the trick.

FAITH, HOPE AND SUE
RUPERT AND THE LITTLE MEN No 24
The Ogre is at first amazed,
Then shakes poor Rupert till he’s dazed;
The Ogre is amazed to see
Rupert coming towards him.
He grabs him and lifts him up.
“So,” he says, “you have
decided to give in, have you?”
“Don’t be angry,” says Rupert,
trying to be calm. “I came to
tell you that we found the
treasure you are looking for.”
“Oh!” says the Ogre, “then lead
me to it, only no more tricks
my lad.” So Rupert leads him
into the castle.

INGREDIENTS
You don’t have to work for a big
business to be successful. Volunteering to
help a charitable organisation could be good
for you in many ways. Doing what you love is
the key to a rewarding career. Don’t listen to
cynics who tell you differently.
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
You could be paid handsomely for
your creative abilities. Not only will you
appreciate a nice pay packet, you’ll also feel
better by doing work you enjoy. Don’t be
surprised if a nagging health problem
disappears after accepting this position.
METHOD
1) Heat the oil in a deep fat
fryer or a large pan.
2) In a large bowl, sieve the
flour, baking powder and salt.
Rub in the butter until the
mixture resembles coarse
crumbs.
3) Gradually stir in the water
just until the dough pulls
together. Divide the dough
into 4 pieces and form each
piece into a ball. Roll the balls
into 20cm diameter circles.
Cut each one into 8 wedges.
4) In a large bowl, mix
together the cinnamon and
sugar. Set aside.
5) Fry the wedges until they
puff up and turn light brown.
Drain briefly, roll in the
cinnamon sugar and serve
hot.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Move patio plants such as cordyline palms outside for the summer,
along with any large conservatory shrubs. They’ll enjoy the fresh air and it’s also a good way
to keep them free of pests and diseases, which are a problem under glass in warm weather.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
Don’t be afraid to lean into love. If
you’ve been hurt in the past, that doesn’t
mean you are doomed to living single. Open
your heart to someone who has shown
themselves to be trustworthy. They could be
from a different climate, country or creed.
0905 789 3704**
Leo July 24 – Aug 23
There’s never been a better time to
establish financial security. Put a down
payment on a home or car. Add money to a
retirement account. Take out an insurance
policy. If you lack funds to make the first
payment, don’t worry. A relative will help.
0905 789 3705**
Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Working with a demanding
professional will make you happy. You’ll enjoy
trying to exceed their expectations. Unlike
most of your peers, you’re willing to dig deep
to find answers. If this means spending long
hours researching things, so be it.
0905 789 3706**
Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20
This is a wonderful time to sign a
contract or negotiate a deal. If you’re not
happy with the terms you are first offered,
propose better ones. You have a lot more
power than you realise. You’ll get the best
when you demand it.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
Making money by doing work you
love is a real possibility. It’s simply a matter
of having faith in your creative abilities. Stop
trying to model yourself after a person who
has a conventional job. You’ll fare much
better working in an unorthodox atmosphere.
0905 789 3711**
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
Instead of telling yourself that
someday you’ll travel to a dream destination,
behave as if you’re already going. Pack a
bag, update your passport and create an
itinerary. Going through the motions of taking
a trip will almost make it happen.

ONDONERS are used to the sight of
new-build luxury apartment blocks
going up – and prices rising with
them. But in Dublin it’s a new
phenomenon: new-build luxury
apartments that is; they’re used to
the price rises. A chronic shortage of homes
in Dublin means second or third-time
buyers often have to sell up and rent before
buying again, or they risk being gazumped.
And while prices are said to have flat-lined
in London with predictions of price falls,
property experts in the Republic of Ireland
suggest price rises in the region of eight per
cent in Dublin and 10 per cent throughout
the country.
The European Commission recorded Irish
economic growth at 7.3 per cent for 2017 –
three times more than any other EU country
– and its GDP is forecast
at 4.4 per cent for 2018.
That’s partly because
Dublin is expected to be
an alternative EU base to
the UK after Brexit for
the financial industry and
to become an important
strategic location for
international business
due to its Englishspeaking workforce and
short transport links to
the UK and EU.
But while there are
plenty of new office
blocks being built, Dublin
has relatively few
residential new-builds; with the notable
exception of what’s been described as a
game-changer for the city’s property market
– Lansdowne Place.
It has a concierge service and residents’
suite that houses a gym with a sauna, steam
room and treatment rooms. And there’s also
a dining room, lounge, library, meeting
rooms and cinema.
The apartments have high ceilings, with
large floor-to-ceiling windows and most
have either sunrooms or balconies.
Lansdowne Place is in the fashionable
Ballsbridge area of Dublin within a
15-minute walk of the city’s central St
Stephen’s Green but only a five-minute
drive from the sea at Sandymount Strand in
Dublin Bay.
Transport links into the city include
Dublin Area Rapid Transport trains, which
will also take you to the seaside resort of
By Deborah Stone
Greystones in County Wicklow. The 215
luxury apartments are in five blocks of seven
or eight-storeys with prices starting from
800,000 euros (£702,159) for a one-bedroom
flat (Savills International: +353 (0) 1 6181300
or Sherry FitzGerald on Tel: +353 (0) 1
6671888 or visit lansdowneplace.ie).
Sales consultant Greg Coffey of Ireland’s
largest estate agent Sherry FitzGerald,
which is marketing the apartments with
Savills in the UK, describes Ballsbridge as
“highly desirable”.
Although Lansdowne Place is being
marketed internationally, he says: “Most of
the buyers have all been Irish, even if they
don’t live in Ireland. They are delighted that
this standard is now
available in Ireland.”
But it is being
marketed in the UK as a
good rental investment.
High rents due to a
shortage of property in
Dublin has created net
rental yields of four to five
per cent.
In 2016 more than a
third of residential
purchases in Ireland were
by investors and,
according to Savills,
many are buying
high-yielding investment
properties to rent out
now and move into themselves in the future.
But buying simply for the pleasure of
living there comes highly recommended by
property magnate Stephen Vernon, 68,
chairman of Green Property, a group of
investment and development companies.
Originally from Bristol, Vernon moved to
Dublin from London because of business
interests.
He lives in one of the penthouses and
doesn’t deny paying 5million euros
(£4.4million) for it, saying: “I was the first
person to buy an apartment there. It
faces south and across the bay to the
mountains.
“It is a beautiful building, built to an
incredibly high standard – Mayfair quality. It
will create a community, as well, which I am
looking forward to as I live on my own.”
He adds: “I like living in Dublin. It is a
great city.”

Warm welcome for big
rebound in retail sales
RETAIL sales came in from the
cold to enjoy their strongest
growth for 18 months in April, but
not before the “Beast from the
East” had wrecked trading at DIY
giant Kingfisher.
Official figures showed sales volumes rebounding by 1.6 per cent
from March, when they were down
by 1.1 per cent owing to the freeze.
This was well above the 0.7 per
cent gain expected by economists.
Petrol sales led the way with
4.7 per cent growth compared with
a 6.9 per cent decline in March,
when road closures affected travel.
Excluding fuel, sales were up by
1.3 per cent as shoppers also
bought more clothes, household
goods and food, with only department stores in decline.
Goods bought in the three
months to April rose 0.1 per cent
after a fall of 0.4 per cent in the first
quarter. The Office for National
Statistics said the underlying position remained “subdued”.
Andrew Wishart, of Capital Economics, said conditions for a sustained recovery in consumer
spending growth are in place, with
healthy employment figures and
real wages on the up. Retail sales
By David Shand
make up nearly a fifth of UK economic output.
But Dr Howard Archer, chief
economic adviser to the EY ITEM
Club, warned: “The recent rise in
oil prices could lead inflation to be
higher than expected in the near
term at least and could hold back
the improvement in consumer
purchasing power.”
He said the Bank of England
would need to see “sustained conclusive evidence that the economy
is bouncing back significantly”
from growth of just 0.1 per cent in
the first quarter before contemplating an interest rate hike.
Meanwhile, Kingfisher’s samestore sales fell 4 per cent in the
first quarter. B&Q was down
by 9 per cent, although Screwfix sales grew by 3.6 per cent.
CEO Veronique Laury said:
“It was a challenging start
to the year with exceptionally harsh weather
across Europe and weak
UK consumer demand.
“Market conditions
continue to be mixed,
with the UK uncertain.”
hourly rate will go up from £8
to £9.20, giving 121,000 workers an average pay rise of 9.3
per cent, with the changes
“rectifying the unfairness of
colleagues working side-byside in store, doing exactly
the same job, but being paid
different amounts, depending
on when they started working
for Sainsbury’s”.
But the removal of paid
breaks and Sunday premium
BACK IN FASHION: Shoppers came in from the cold
pay will leave 9,000 workers
worse off by an average £400.
Sainsbury’s will make up the
difference in their earnings
for 18 months and review its
policy in March 2020.
Usdaw
national
officer
Joanne McGuinness said: “We
are pleased to have moved
the company on some elements, but remain concerned
that 7 per cent of staff will not
benefit from what is a sub-
stantial pay rise for the vast
majority. Some staff could be
worse-off after the 18 months
of top-up payments end and
we will continue in talks with
the company to try to mitigate that issue.”
The Unite union said it
would seek legal advice overSainsbury’s “failure to meaningfully consult over a ‘robbing Peter to pay Paul’ pay
offer”.

TALKTALK boss Tristia
Harrison said the
company was “making
good progress” with its
turnaround plan, despite
sinking into the red
owing to marketing and
restructuring costs.
The telecoms and
broadband supplier
posted a £73million
annual pre-tax loss
compared with a
£70million profit the
previous year.
It renewed its focus on
increasinging its
customer base after
losing business owing to
a cyber attack in 2015.
It added a record
109,000 customers in its
fourth quarter, with
growth of 192,000 over
the year to 4.14 million.

DEUTSCHE Bank is to
slash more than 7,000
jobs in a cost-cutting
drive that could put
hundreds of roles in
London at risk.
The German giant,
which made a
£645million loss last
year, said the number of
full-time jobs would be
reduced from more than
97,000 to “well below”
90,000 by the end of
2019.
It did not specify
where the axe would fall,
but a large chunk of its
equities sales and
trading business is
based in the capital,
where it employs 8,500.
Deutsche is cutting
about a quarter of jobs
in its equities business.

PETER JONES, former
chairman of the Tote, is
backing Britbet over his
past paymasters as two
pool-betting groups
prepare to go head to
head on British
racecourses this summer.
The Tote’s monopoly
on pool betting ends in
July when Britbet,
which has the backing
of 55 of the 60 tracks, is
due to launch. But this
week, the Alizeti
consortium, including
racehorse owners and
breeders, bought a
25 per cent stake in the
Tote from Fred Done,
CEO of Betfred, who
acquired it from the
government in 2011 for
£265m. Alizeti plan a
full takeover by 2023.
“There is room for
only one pool-betting
operator in Britain so it
could be a case of who
blinks first,” said Jones.
“My heart favours
Britbet as they will have
the key international
market and I see more
money returning to
racing from them.”

BRITAIN’S Simon Yates
saw his lead over defending
champion Tom Dumoulin
cut in half up the sharp
closing climb to Prato
Nevoso on stage 18 of the
Giro d’Italia.
German Maximilian
Schachmann won the
196km stage from
Abbiategrasso after
capitalising on a
breakaway to
finish ahead of
Spaniard Ruben
Plaza Molina.
But the biggest
drama played out
behind them as Yates,
who started the day with a
56-second lead over
Dumoulin at the top of the
General Classification, was
dropped in the final few
kilometres of the climb to
blow the race wide open.
Dumoulin followed an
attack by four-time Tour de
France champion Chris
Froome to finish just ahead
of the Team Sky rider, as

Yates, below, struggled
badly for the first time.
“I didn’t have great legs
but did the best I could.
I’m still in front so it’s all
good,” said Yates.
Dumoulin was cautiously
optimistic and pleased
to have picked his
moment to get
within 28 seconds
of Yates with three
stages remaining.
“I was waiting
until the moment
and with two
kilometres to go I tried
to see what was possible,”
he said. “Yates responded
to my first attack then
Froome attacked and I
tried to follow, and I
suddenly found Yates was
dropped.”
Italian Domenico
Pozzovivo is third overall
with Froome in fourth,
three minutes 22 seconds
back.

KYLE EDMUND will
play Australian
teenager Alex de Minaur
in the first round of the
French Open, which
starts on Sunday.
The British No1 is
seeded 16th and carries
his country’s best hopes
of an extended run at
Roland Garros, in the
absence of the injured
Andy Murray, after
recently breaking into
the world’s top 20 for the
first time.
Britain’s other
representative in the
men’s singles draw,
Cameron Norrie, 22, has
been rewarded for
making a Grand Slam
main draw for the first
time by being paired
with Germany’s Petr
Gojowczyk.
Defending champion
Rafael Nadal is chasing
a record-extending 11th
title and will begin his
campaign against
Ukraine’s Alexandr
Dolgopolov.
Novak Djokovic is in
the opposite half of the
draw and will take on a
qualifier in his opener.

RUGBY UNION: AVIVA PREMIERSHIP FINAL
Maro faces
uphill battle
with Jonny
EXETER hotshot Jonny
Hill is looking to send
new England team-mate
Maro Itoje into reverse
tomorrow as his champion
Chiefs take on Saracens
at Twickenham with the
mantra: the bigger they
are the harder they fall.
The Saracens pack, replete
with big names and big men
such as Itoje, swept Wasps aside
in the semi-final last Saturday
but no-one does that to Exeter.
Saracens may have the stars
in tomorrow’s Premiership final
but the Devonians are quietly
confident of making it five wins
in a row in all competitions
against them.
“We target their strengths,”
said Hill. “We don’t change too
much but there’s a sense of us
upping our game when we play
them.
“Against the big sides like
Sarries you have to be that three
per cent more into the game.
There’s a big kicking battle but
the gainline is everything against
these guys. You have to meet
them there and get them
back over it. That’s the
challenge.
“I’m looking forward
to a one-on-one battle
with Maro Itoje.
“I’ll give him the
respect he deserves
by going full out
against him.”
Hill, an England
Under-20s teammate of Itoje
during
his
Gloucester days,
has
flowered
this season at
Sandy Park and
earned a call-up
I’M GUNNING
FOR YOU: Hill
cannot wait to get
stuck into his old
team-mate Itoje,

***/lmx
Neil
SQUIRES
REPORTS
to the senior squad for next
month’s tour to South Africa.
The 6ft 7in second row took
Jones’s description of him – “not
too many bells and whistles” – as
a compliment.
“I’m happy with that,” he said.
Hailing from Ludlow, Hill’s
other sporting passion is horse
racing.
“I used to bunk off school to go
to the races,” he said. “I am quite
friendly with a few jockeys – Nick
Scholfield and Tom Scudamore
live not too far away from here
and have come to watch a few
games. There is a crossover.
They are in a bit of a team
environment themselves.”
He also likes his cricket and
once played in a Twenty20 match
with Chris Gayle.
“I opened the batting with
Andy Caddick that day and Chris
came in No 9 with about three
overs to go and got 50 not out,”
he said. “There were some huge
sixes. He hit one six, someone
ran on to the pitch with a pint
which he downed, and then he
hit another six next ball. He
didn’t bother fielding.”
Hill was picked up by Rob
Baxter three years ago when
his Gloucester career stalled
because of a fractured ankle. It
has proven a typically astute
piece of recruitment from the
Exeter director of rugby.
“I was injured at Gloucester
for 14 months but Rob took a
punt on me and saying yes to
that was the best thing I ever
did,” said Hill.
“It’s a squad of different
characters but we all push in the
same direction and it works a
treat. Last year Ben White
from Canberra was here.
He was an absolute
Aussie chav. Then you
have someone like
James Short, who has
been to one of the
poshest schools in
England.
“There’s a great
atmosphere
and
there’s always little
things going on.”
The cookie club
and
sandwich
club
meet
regularly.
Hill,
who
was
at
St James Park
last week to see
Exeter City reach
Monday’s League
Two promotion play-off final
at Wembley, runs the club’s
fantasy football league.
The
extra-curricular
activities all help to ensure
Chiefs are much more than the
sum of their parts. Those who
expected them to be one-hit
wonders after last season’s
fairy-tale final triumph in
extra-time against Wasps
have been wide of the mark.
“We’ve enjoyed being the
champions. You need to be
on your mettle every week
because teams are going to
raise their game to try to beat
us but we’ve weathered a few
storms,” said Hill.
“We haven’t had the perfect
picture all season but I’d like
to think we’re peaking at the
right time. As are Saracens.
First against second is a fair
final.”

Barba a cut
above again
for Saints
WHEN will Ben Barba
tire of teasing and
tormenting opposition
defences with moments
of individual brilliance?
The St Helens
full-back was at it again
last night, scoring
another contender for
try of the season to add
to his 2018 highlights.
Barba, above, is
Super League’s leading
scorer and has cut a
swathe through the
competition, outpacing
and outclassing all
before him.
The Aussie star
claimed a length-of-thefield beauty in the 14th
minute when he
collected possession
yards from his own line.
Team-mate Adam
Swift fumbled a high
kick but the ball went
backwards and rather
fortuitously into the
path of Barba. He
spotted a gap and
showed his speed and
CASTLEFORD

strength to outstrip the
Tigers’ defence down
the touchline before
diving over to score.
The try was Barba’s
20th of the season and
helped Justin
Holbrook’s Super
League leaders to their
sixth successive victory.
Castleford should
have known to keep a
closer eye on Barba as
just 12 days earlier the
28-year-old’s hat-trick
had dumped Daryl
Powell’s men out of
the Challenge Cup.
Barba was forced off
in the second half with
a minor knock last
night but by then his
team were already
coasting to victory.
Holbrook said: “Ben’s
fine, it was just a couple
reader
offer
of bumps and bruises,
and it was a great try.
Good players back
themselves and Benny
certainly does.”
Castleford boss
Powell said: “The
players have got to do
their jobs better.
“I watch Hull and
think they’ve got balls
about them, but I don’t
think we have against
the big teams.”
Saints prop Kyle
Amor and Castleford’s
Mike McMeeken traded
tries before Barba’s
scintillating effort and
further scores from
Dominique Peyroux
and Jonny Lomax made
it 22-4 at the break.
Ryan Morgan
grabbed a second-half
brace and Theo Fages
scored Saints’ seventh
try. Castleford hit back
through Jy Hitchcox,
Jacob Trueman and
Oliver Holmes before
Fages’ second late on.

CRICKET: FIRST TEST
It’s era we go
Main picture: GARETH COPLEY
By Chris Stocks at Lord’s
A FRESH start? A
new era? Sadly, this
was the same old
England.
FORTUNE SMILING: McIlroy is in a strong position
Fast start in
BMW suits
McIlroy fine
AS RORY MCILROY
looked ahead to a
golden summer after
making his fastest
start to a BMW PGA
Championship
yesterday, Richard
Bland was thankful
just for the moment.
Bland matched
McIlroy’s five-underpar 67 at a damp
Wentworth, a round
the tournament’s star
name hopes will set the
standards for a revival
in form.
It was one stroke
better than when
McIlroy won the
tournament in 2014, a
victory that proved the
catalyst for a stunning
season in which the
Northern Irishman won
two Majors and
became world No1.
But for Bland, the
buzz came less from
keeping McIlroy’s
company and more
from the presence of a
particular
face in the
crowd.
“My
brother got
seriously ill
in December
and was in a
coma for
nearly a
month after
Christmas. He’s still
recovering but he’s
here today,” said
Bland. “It’s great to see
him walking round.
He’s on the road to
recovery.
“We were a close
family anyway and it’s
brought us closer
together. It just makes
you think that even
though I’ve had a
tough time on the
course, life ain’t that
bad.”
Both Bland and
McIlroy, along with
Matt Fitzpatrick,
finished the first round
two shots behind
Danish leader Lucas
Bjerregaard.
McIlroy said: “I’m
not quite as
comfortable with my
game as I was when I
won here but it’s
getting there.
“There are courses
you feel you can chase
on and be OK but if
GOLF
By Neil Squires
you start to chase here
it can bite you pretty
quickly. It’s similar to
Sawgrass if you get out
of position. So to shoot
a 67 to start off is great.
“I played a lot better
than I have the last
couple of weeks. I saw
some good shots,
better drives, I putted
well for the main part –
if I can do more of the
same over the next
three days I should
have a decent chance.
“After that I have a
few big tournaments in
the States and a very
busy summer with a lot
of important stuff.”
It could have been
even better for the
Northern Irishman but
for a photographer’s
camera going off on his
backswing as he played
his second shot to the
18th. McIlroy,
who mis-hit
his approach
and missed a
three-foot
birdie putt,
gave the
culprit a
filthy stare
but made up
with him.
“It’s a tough enough
golf shot without
something going off at
the top of your swing,
but it happens. It’s
fine. I’m sure he didn’t
mean to do it.”
There was more
West Course woe for
Ian Poulter, who was
less reflective after a
two-over-par 74.
He said: “This is an
interesting course. I’m
extremely angry, I’m
extremely frustrated,
I’m extremely
disappointed.
“Let’s leave it as
those words because if
I used any others I’m
going to look like a
complete t**.”
❑ THE Staysure Tour
will be decided by a
paradise swing in the
Seychelles and
Mauritius.
Europe’s seniors tour
will now end in a new
two-stage Final Series
in December.
My game
is getting
there
Losing in Australia and
New
Zealand
was
disappointing
but
not
unexpected. After all, hardly
anyone wins Test series
away any more. But things
were meant to be different
at home, especially against
a relatively inexperienced
Pakistan team.
Instead, a sell-out Lord’s
crowd on the opening day
of the Test summer was
served up more of the same
old tripe as England were
bundled out for just 184 on
the opening day of this first
Test.
The glaring weaknesses
that were exposed during
the winter were in evidence
again as the hosts lost their
last five wickets for 16 runs
in just 27 balls.
That is despite a change
in personnel that saw James
Vince dropped, Joe Root
shifted up to No3, Jonny
Bairstow to No5 and Jos
Buttler parachuted in from
the Indian Premier League
to resume his Test career at
No7. There was even a debut
for 20-year-old spinner Dom
Bess. But nothing has really
changed at all.
Pakistan were excellent,
especially
inexperienced
seamers Hasan Ali and
Mohammad Abbas, who
shared
eight
wickets
between them. But there is
no escaping the fact England
were abject.
Root decided to bat first
after winning the toss under
grey skies. The scars inflicted
over the winter were soon
reopened by the excellent
Abbas, who bowled Mark
Stoneman in the fourth over,
and Hasan, who had Root
and Dawid Malan caught
behind.
Stoneman, under pressure
after an unconvincing winter,
will be lucky to survive the
series if he carries on like
this, having been bowled for
just four. Root then played a
rash shot outside off to fall
for the same score.
England were 43-3 when
Malan, another who has yet
to fully establish himself
despite
an
encouraging
Ashes campaign, fell for six.
By lunch, the hosts had
DOWN AND OUT:

taken their score to 72
without further loss, Alastair
Cook unbeaten on 46
alongside Bairstow.
But the fourth-wicket
pair’s stand was halted with
the total on 100 when
Bairstow was bowled by
Faheem Ashraf.
Cook, who had reached
his
half-century
shortly
before Bairstow’s departure,
rebuilt again, this time
alongside Ben Stokes. The
pair put on 49 before Cook
was deceived by a brilliant
delivery from Mohammad
Amir, his Essex team-mate
last summer who has now
dismissed him six times in
Tests.
That brought Buttler to
the crease and the IPL pair
took the total to 165-5 at tea.
But both were dismissed in
quick succession in the
evening session. Pakistan
were thankful for a smart
review when Abbas appealed
what looked a marginal lbw
against Stokes.
They were right, with the
ball pitching just in line, and
Stokes had gone for 38.
Then Buttler, the whiteball specialist playing his
first Test in 18 months, was
caught brilliantly at second
slip off Hasan following a
rash – dare I say it, T20 –
shot outside off stump.
Buttler’s recall cannot be
judged on one knock but his
innings of 14 from 15 balls
was the kind of start the
pessimists
would
have
expected.
It left England 168-7 and
they were soon all out for 184
as Bess, caught at second
slip off Abbas, Stuart Broad,
trapped lbw by the same
man, and Mark Wood, caught
off Hasan, fell cheaply.
England hit back early in
Pakistan’s reply when Broad
had Imam-ul-Haq dismissed
lbw on review but the
tourists are in a strong
position.

ICC sanctions
FROM BACK PAGE
from the players in question, team
management was approached by the
International Cricket Council anticorruption officer at the close of play.
The ICC have the power to
confiscate the watches and download
all recent data to monitor activity.
Pakistan management confirmed
the incident and bowler Hasan Ali said:
“I didn’t know who was wearing it but
the ICC anti-corruption officer came
and they told us this is not allowed so
I think next time nobody will wear it.”
An ICC spokesman said: “Apple
watches in any way connected to a
phone or WiFi, or in any way capable
of receiving comms such as messages,
are not allowed. In effect, it is
considered a phone unless disabled.”
Mohammad Amir, who took the
wicket of Alastair Cook yesterday, was
banned for five years and spent time
in jail for his part in the 2010 plot to
bowl no-balls to order. Former captain
Salman Butt and bowler Mohammad
Asif were also banned over the plan.

FABIAN PUTTING PARENT DUTIES ON HOLD

Wembley won’t

WEMBLEY will always

the promise yesterday
of FA chairman Greg
Clarke in a letter to the
council members who
are set to debate the
sale of the national
stadium next week.
He reassured
members that current
restrictions on naming
rights, future resale
and usage would
remain in place
with key FA

they do not

“This is not a

Clarke, above. “We
must consider whether
this is an opportunity
worth taking.”
There was uproar
when news first leaked
that the FA were

Khan for the stadium

canvassed 4,000 people
on the subject and
admit that more were

per cent) than for it
(23 per cent).
But with many
undecided, Clarke
hopes that by
clarifying
uncertainties
over the deal
in an open
letter to the
council
members, he
can sway popular
opinion in support
of selling out and
investing the bulk of
the money in grassroots football.
“It’s important to
remember that the FA
did not own Wembley
Stadium before 1999, so
this is not a historic
situation we are
unwinding,” he wrote.
“We did not own it in
1966 or 1996.”

THE NEW
MEET OUR NEW SQUAD MEMBER
WAITING GAME:
Delph’s last match
for England was in
2015 against Spain
FABIAN DELPH’S call
to be England’s midfield
enforcer in Russia could
not have been better
timed: he was about to
be consigned to a
summer
of
wearing
wigs and having his
fingernails painted pink.
The Manchester City player
still has not represented
England
under
Gareth
Southgate, having played his
last game for the Three Lions
in a friendly against Spain in
November 2015.
A series of injuries looked
like he might miss out this
summer – as he had done in
Euro 2016 – until a late run of
form in the Premier League
earned him one of the last
seats on the plane to Russia.
Delph insisted the message
from Southgate last week was
not a total shock but it is fair
to say it may have come as a
relief.
“I was at home when I got
the text,” he said. “I thought I
had a good chance of being

was surprised. But I was over

cartwheels. My oldest one was

Sophia, who is five years old,
and Aleya, nearly three, a baby
on the way and the missus
Natalie – and they all hate
football. They couldn’t care
less. In fact, my daughters are
absolutely devastated I’m
going to be away.
“When I’m on holiday, I’m
doing stuff with my girls,
letting them paint my nails
pink and all that stuff, putting
wigs on my head – wigs feel
nice on this head, to be fair.
“I put 100 per cent into
everything I do. I’m very

and, while I don’t neglect
them, there are times when I
can’t do as much with them
because I need to make

Southgate ahead of the squad
meeting up at St George’s

“We’re not 100 per cent
certain if I will be back for the
birth,” said Delph. “There
might be an opportunity to fly
back and then get back fast.
“Gareth has been absolutely

think his wife’s expecting.
“There’s

so if I do have the opportunity
to get back, I will. But if not,
she’s tough, she’ll deal with it.”
The pair met when Delph
had already broken into the
first team at Leeds so Natalie
had a fair idea of what she was
letting herself in for – although
Delph’s “Yorkshireness” does
need the occasional top-up.
“Natalie rang me saying,
‘You’ve forgotten your tea
bags’,” said Delph. “So

While his daughters may be
upset that daddy will not be
home for a large slice of the
summer, Delph said: “The
missus is buzzing. She did a
back flip!”
With their third child due on
June 30, that seems a trifle
unlikely. “It’s a tricky time, but
she’s a Yorkshire lass so she’ll

England have missed out.

carries the tag of the
worst trainer at Fulham.
But neither team-mates nor
fans should worry about what
the midfielder will bring to
Wembley in the most lucrative
match of the season tomorrow.
“I’ll give everything I’ve got
for Fulham,” said McDonald on
the eve of the Championship
play-off final against Aston
Villa. “I am ready now to take
another step forward, even
though I’ve been accused of
being the worst trainer in the
club.
“I still am, I don’t know why. I
just switch off at times. I know
you should train how you play,
but I feel more relaxed doing it
my way.
“But when it comes to match

‘‘I want to make sure I am
100 per cent fresh and ready.
The manager doesn’t really
accept it, he lets it go under
the radar but does pull me up
every now and then.
“But he knows he can rely on
me when it comes to match day,
I’m the first one to put myself
forward for a fight, or a battle. I
wouldn’t want to cross him
though. He’s not scary, but he
can be a bit intimidating for
certain people.”
Victory for Fulham will see
Slavisa Jokanovic reach the
Premier League for the
second time. He achieved the
feat with Watford in 2015 but
then left the club before the
new season began.
Jokanovic has turned Fulham
into the Championship’s most
stylish side but McDonald
knows they may have to get
physical when it matters most
tomorrow.
“We just might need to get
nasty,” said McDonald.
“We are generally accepted as
the team who plays possession
football to a very high standard
but we also know we have to be
100 per cent ready if we are to
beat Villa.
“It’s not all about playing
nice football. We have to earn
the right to do that. They will
be up for a fight, too, so we’ll
need to make sure we are up for
exactly the same.
“Its going to be a tough game.
We have to get our heads down.
If we don’t put in the hard work
– and that means every single
one of us – we will get beaten.
“People say we play Premier
League
football
in
the
Championship. I’m not sure
about that – when we played
Tottenham in the cup we got
battered. We can’t just turn up

and expect to play for 90

Fulham finished the season in
third place, five points ahead
of Villa in fourth. But the team
rated the culture club of the
division know they will be fully
tested by a Villa side searching
for their own return to the top
flight.
Villa were relegated at the
end of the 2015-2016 season,
while Fulham dropped into the
Championship two years earlier.

final match can bring, having

“If you are going to

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL
Ronaldo still
pips Salah by
a short head
On the eve of tomorrow’s Champions League
final between Liverpool and Real Madrid,
Anfield legend Mark Lawrenson assesses
which of the game’s two superstars has the
edge – Mohamed Salah or Cristiano Ronaldo.
EXCLUSIVE
IN THE AIR
RONALDO is as good as any
centre forward in the world in
the air because he has this
prodigious leap and his timing
is fantastic. His neck muscles
are so strong. You wouldn’t put
Salah anywhere near him.
In the air, Salah could
develop. I don’t see it being a
problem though. When you
look at his goals, it’s always
with the ball at his feet. His
feet are so quick and he
moves so well.
I don’t envisage
sitting here at the
end of next season
and he has scored
10 with his head.
I would be pretty
surprised if he
gets two.
With Ronaldo it is
a muscular thing and
it is also about timing.
He will just have worked
really hard at it. Phil Neville
said to me when Ronaldo
was at Old Trafford he worked
on everything all the time.
He has developed his body

and the power that goes

FINISHING
Even this year with Salah he
missed loads of opportunities
at the start of the season. You
kind of thought, ‘Oh he’s going
to be one of those streaky
players where he scores
10 in a row but doesn’t
score for another 10’.
But then he just
seemed to kick on.
The
big
difference between
him and Ronaldo
is he is still capable
of missing quite a
few. If you said your
life depends on it,
Salah is through and
Ronaldo is through, you would
have to back Ronaldo.
That is why he is up there
with Lionel Messi. Eventually
we will look at Ronaldo and say
he is one of the top five in the
world… ever. I wouldn’t have
given you any money to back
him scoring so many when he
came to Manchester United.
He has made himself that way.
Salah’s achievements this
season are frightening but
Jurgen Klopp said, as good as
he has been, he is not in
Ronaldo’s class at the moment.
And he’s not, because Ronaldo
has scored goals year in, year
out, in the very best teams.

TECHNICAL ABILITY
You don’t take the ball off
Ronaldo. He is so big and so
powerful. But Ronaldo doesn’t
really beat people any more. He
gets half a yard and bang. His
game has changed. He doesn’t
make his own goals any more
because he doesn’t have to.
Salah makes his own goals so
you have to say he is technically
better at the moment.
Against
Tottenham
at
Anfield, Salah got the ball
outside the penalty area with
three players around him. He
pushed into the box and that
was
clever
because
the
defenders are then scared to
tackle him. He just completely
bamboozled them.
It’s like Messi, you know

you cannot stop it because he

“I bought 300 Liverpool

Senegal international Mane is
already a hero back home, not

national side, but having used
his fame and fortune for good
causes.
In April this year, he donated
£200,000 to help build a

showing he has not forgotten
his roots.

through the roof if he helps

Real coaches will also say to

Salah doesn’t have that
luxury. He has to stop the leftback getting out. That is the
way Liverpool play. When he
hasn’t done it, he has had to
face Klopp. He’s like, ‘Come on,
we chase back in this team’.
That only makes Salah’s
season even better because he
is involved in the pressing game
and has still scored all these
goals – lots of which he has
made for himself. I played in a
team with Kenny Dalglish and
he was a genius who worked

is also five out five. Ronaldo’s

“I remember AC Milan against

This was a big memory for me.
I was watching in my village,”
he said.
“I remember being with a big

still cannot believe it.
“I spoke to him this week. He

Mane has scored nine goals
during this Champions League
campaign, alongside Mo Salah
(10) and Roberto Firmino (10)
forming the most prolific front
line operating in Europe.
And the Liverpool forward
believes it is their attacking
intent and their exciting style
of play that will see most
neutral supporters cheering

“I cannot say most of the

LIVERPOOL are working with fans and

taking Liverpool fans to Kiev had been

The operator said that due to so
many flights heading to Ukraine ahead
of Liverpool’s meeting with Real
Madrid, Boryspil Airport had been
unable to allocate times for the three
planes. Up to 20,000 Liverpool fans
are expected to make the journey.
World Choice added that it had done
everything it could to secure slots,
but that to “reiterate, the problem is

That left upwards of 1,000 Liverpool
